This book presents an engaging, simple story about a childhood quarrel between two friends on a hot summer day in an inner city neighborhood. Javaka Steptoes's unique collage illustrations on rough boards bring the story to life. You can almost feel the heat of the day, get a sense of the neighborhood, and see the girl's anger in their exaggerated facial features.  Of course best friends can't stay mad at each other for long.(Prepared by: Suzanne Rhoten, SCASL Picture Book Awards)
