About the Author
"Puck switches coasts in this companion to 2013’s One to Ten NYC, which introduces aspects of life in Los Angeles while counting to 10. As in the previous book, a vertical column at the right edge of each spread lists each number in 10 languages, including French, Korean, Tagalog, and Vietnamese. 'There is only one Hollywood sign,' the author begins, before highlighting the two landings at Santa Monica Pier and three domes atop the Griffith Observatory; later entries note five-pointed stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and seven fossils at the La Brea Tar Pits. Garrison’s polished cartoons and the book’s multilingual element make for an appealing overall package." —Publishers Weekly
A perfect book for young girls that are starting middle school. Amina is trying to figure out who she is and what she stands for as she learns about friends, bullying, and what it truly means to stand up for what you believe in. Lovely coming of age story. It also has such a stunning cover. - Jessica
