School Library Journal - Chance Lee Joyner

"The picture book upends readers’ expectations. On the surface, it may seem like a book about learning to be brave enough to follow what others are doing, but it turns out that is not what Wanda wants at all. The story allows her the agency to choose, and it respects her choice. . . . Charming and modern. A must-add for most collections and necessary for the SEL shelves." - School Library Journal
