“Eighth grader Apple and her mother moved from the Philippines to Louisiana several years ago after the death of her father. All Apple has left of her dad is a Beatles cassette…At school, her two best friends are trying to become part of the in-group and have become very critical of her, especially after it’s discovered that she is on the unwritten Dog-Log and considered one of the ugliest girls in school. Apple is embarrassed by her mother, who doesn’t speak English well…[and] is desperate to get a guitar so she can learn to play the Beatles songs that her dad loved….When the music teacher loans her a guitar, she discovers that she is something of a prodigy. The story will resonate with any student…who has felt different…” –School Library Journal
