Being Fishkill is a novel that will make you cheer and cry many times until the final lines. Hopeful yet realistic, Carmel Fishkill changes her name to Fishkill Carmel after her mean grandfather’s death and her flaky mother’s disappearance. Spending time with friend Duck-Duck and Duck-Duck’s mother Molly helps Fishy realize just how important family is and how much she would like to be part of their family. I am thankful to the publisher and NetGalley for the opportunity to be an early reader in exchange for my fair and honest review.

Wrenching and totally involving, Fishkill's story illuminates the resilience and tenacity of a young adolescent who has long known how to protect herself. What she also must learn is how to open herself to the possibility of friendship and of a loving parental relationship. I couldn't put it down.
