My Review:

This is a beautifully written and illustrated picture book about a child, named Marie, living in a cross-cultural environment. Marie is happy and well-adjusted, but she discovers that her dad has a new job and they have to move. Leaving her best friend behind is the hardest. As you follow along the lyrical script, you will find out how she copes with change.
