I love Dyamonde Daniel: she's smart, thoughtful, self-aware, and not overly concerned with what others think of her. In "Make Way," Dyamonde, just beginning at a new school herself, watches another new kid scowl and stomp and mope for a week. Everyone else avoids Free, but Dyamonde knows there's got to be more to this story. She decides to straight-up ask him: "Why are you so mad?", and a new friendship slowly begins. Dyamonde lives in a city (New York), and it's a nice change from the frequent suburban settings in beginning chapter books. Her parents are recently divorced, and she's comfortable feeling both sad about it and relieved that there isn't so much yelling and fighting going on in her life any more. A great beginning chapter book with a memorable lead, excellent writing, and fabulous illustrations.
