Cassandra Morris’s beautifully fluid narration highlights the themes of identity and friendship in this heartwarming story. Julia just wants to be like the other girls. Unlike Avery and Becca, her Chinese “sisters”—who were both adopted from the same orphanage that she was—Julia wants to forget all about China and adoption. With her youthful voice, Morris embodies Julia, capturing the turmoil and mortification of a girl who is struggling to accept her identity while also trying to fit in with the cliques at her summer camp. Morris’s performance is touching. Her lively modulations and giggles convey the high, excited tones of girls as they laugh and bicker, while strained whispers capture the quiet, heartfelt moments as secrets are shared and loyalties betrayed.
