By Charlotte Agell
India (named after the ink, not the sub continent) is nine.
She was adopted from China and lives with her Mother in small town in Maine, and spends the weekends with her Gay Dad and his partner in a nearby town.
As India says,
"I love my dad, too, except that he lives with Richard, and I'm just not so sure about Richard. It doesn't seem fair that he gets to see Dad every day and I don't."Here's the really charming book trailer:
A diary-like illustrated story, the book isn't about these potential "issues" - it's about India and her dog, Tofu, and her friend, Colby, and the everyday - and yes, accidental, adventures of being nine.
