why i chose the book: seems like an interesting choice.
I enjoyed the themes of anxiety in this book, & related to Cat as she worried about her sister's health. It's difficult for kids to handle that kind of stress & fear (not to mention the occasional guilt), even for adults. Telgameier does a great job of conveying all this in a super kid-friendly way, while also telling a fantastical story about moving to a new place, making new friends, & refamiliarizing yourself w/your family's culture.
