Resource Description

Eight-year-old Cilla wants to be a famous author and sets out to write a book about her life before her new sibling is born which she knows will change the family forever. Cilla details many experiences, including growing up in a biracial family, experiences with baldness, struggles with reading, arguments with her best friend, complex family dynamics, and relationships with her grandparents, all of which help her to be a big sister and to develop self-understanding. Suited to literature circles, class read-aloud, or independent reading, it focuses on relatable topics of sibling rivalry, friendship, learning challenges, and family relationships.
