. She won a Newbery Honor Award for A Corner of

charming and spunky girl on the autism spectrum, the dog she loves, and a
hurricane that changes everything. 
The New York
Times Book Review
 writes,
“Ann M. Martin, a Newbery Honor winner, offers this affecting, elegantly
burnished middle-grade book about a girl with autism. . . . And yet the book
isn’t actually about autism, or even any coming-of-age theme. It’s about love
and fealty, fear, hope, the release from burdens, and what kids–all kids–need
but often don’t get.” Author Kate DiCamillo calls it “heartbreaking and
heart-mending at the same time.”
