"A sympathetic portrayal of adolescent angst with a feel-good resolution." —Kirkus Reviews

"An engaging story about body image, family dynamics, and the power of poetry."—School Library Journal

"Cotterill depicts Jelly and her friends deftly, and her exploration of Jelly's feelings is sensitive and convincing and heralds her triumph in the end, demonstrating her newly found self-respect."—Booklist

Twelve-year-old Jelly hides her true self behind her humor and keeps her true thoughts and feelings locked away in a notebook. Can she find the courage to share who she really is?
