This book is about friendship. First Dyamonde moved to another city without friends. Then there was a boy named Free...

We recommend this book to third graders, especially kids who don't have many friends. It teaches good lessons, like how to make friends, what to do if you're sad and need friends and not to judge someone, because they might have something bad in their life. It also shows you that it's important to be friends with people who don't have friends.

In our third grade class, we compared the characters in this book to those in Because of Winn Dixie. It was a great text to use to learn this impotant reading skill.

We gave this book five stars because it helps people who are sad to get happy!

(Written by Class 3A)
My 7-year old completed the book in three reading sessions. She stayed up later, under the blankets with a book light, because she could not wait to see the ending. Her favorite theme throughout the book was Dyamonde's willingness to help the new kid, Free, adjust to his new school. She liked the idea of one kid, with her own problems, helping another.

The author Nikki Grimes handled the issues of divorce and separation incredibly well. The book sparked a discussion between my daughter and me about divorce. One of her friends at school is experiencing the difficulties of divorce. Dyamonde's experience helped to shape my daughter's understanding of how kids deal with this complex situation. The book, in the end, was a joy for my daughter to read, while helping her conceptualize some of life's complicated experiences.
I love these type of books for my 8 year old! She enjoys them and I will continue to support and order them for her!
I love Mercedes
This is a very cute book with a good story. It's great for third and fourth grade readers. It's a story that a lot of kids will be able to relate to, whether they have personally experienced events like it or their friends have. I recommend this book for anyone with an elementary school or middle school kid.
Great for teaching character traits.
Niece enjoyed reading this book.
This was a gift for my granddaughter.
This little lady is unstoppable. Even though she's young, she has pearls of wisdom from her own experiences with her family, school, and friends. She's a force that the new boy, Free, doesn't want to cross. Nikki Grimes teaches valuable lessons with this book. One lesson is you can NOT judge a book by its cover. You should always get to know about people, places, and things BEFORE you judge. This is a great lesson for young people to learn. Ms. Grimes did a fantastic job connecting this message in her story where children can relate.

The discussion questions at the end were great!!
