About the Book

Jamaica was friends with everyone in school - except for Russell. No wonder: Russell was a mean brat. When they had art class, Russell borrowed her markers and spoiled her picture. At recess, he threw sand and chased little kids. Jamaica certainly wasn't sorry to learn that Russell was going to move away. She didn't even want to make a card for him, the way the others in her class were doing. But then something happened to change her mind . . .

Critical Praise

"Havill here gives children insight into the phenomenon of acting out, where a child's distress about one aspect of life comes out in an unexpected way; Jamaica behaves realistically throughout, expressing her anger, but finding a way to reconcile with Russell before he leaves." --The Bulletin Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books —
