It's a good book, it's about a boy's relationship with his father and the differences they have. His dad wants him to play sports but he loves to be creative and loves science.

Dyamonde misses her best friend, Alisha, who she had to leave behind in Brooklyn. Now she lives with her mom in Washington Heights, and she hasn't found a new best friend yet. New kid Free doesn't seem like a good candidate at first - he is grumpy and growly - but when Dyamonde stands up to him/gets to know him better, she finds they have a lot in common.

A super quick read with lots of spunk and promise.

Quotes

"You really don't care what people think."
"About what?"
"About sitting with me. About anything."
"Why should I?" asked Dyamonde. "I know what I think, and that's enough."
Free just shook his head.
"You can't do things or not do things just 'cause somebody else thinks you should." (55)

Dyamonde is a spirited girl that is fun to root for, and I like that this series keeps a very positive tone while addressing some of the big stuff kids deal with.
