I loved Be Prepared. It brought me back to summers when I was a kid. It deals with important stuff in such a wonderful way. Vera struggles to fit in at school. She hopes that summer camp with other kids who have the same Russian background as she does will be help her finally feel like she belongs somewhere. Of course things don't go as planned and she has difficulty navigating new friends and what it really means to be a friend. We've all stepped into these muddy waters and it was such a refreshing and sweet look at ways to overcome struggles with belonging. Young, old, and everyone in between will fall in love with Vera's big heart.
