Thirteen-year-old Addie Carle wants to change the world.  Addie is a sensitive and caring young lady, yet when she wants to get her point across she is unbending.  When given the opportunity, Addie will defend her beliefs.  Through many experiences, Addie will touch many lives, and change the minds of a few.  The telling of this superb story is done in excellent verse.  It will inspire young people to stand-up for the important things in life, and let the small issues go. 
(Booktalk by the Sequoya Youth Book Award committee, 2014)
