Common Sense says
This lovely story about a girl coping with her mother's prison sentence will speak to anyone who's ever felt on the outside looking in. June 15, Eleven-year-old Ruby Danes hovers on the fringes of her life. Also painful: the visiting hours at the prison, which never seem long enough. But what Ruby misses most of all are the everyday things that other kids take for granted.
