Flip and Flop : Dawn Apperley :The book is considered a very good story for children who are trying to adjust in a new school. The book focuses on a nine-year-old girl named Lavina but is called Vinnie whose life has been in turmoil following her father's death. Vinnie and her five-year-old brother Mason, who has turned mute following their father's funeral, are sent to live with their grandmother in a rural Virginia community. Vinnie has difficulty adjusting to her new school, where the only signs of friendship are extended to her by a poor Latina named Lupe, who only ever wears flip-flops, and a supportive male teacher. Vinnie reacts poorly to this outreach, vandalizing the teacher's automobile and pinning the blame on Lupe, but she later learns to deal with her anger and makes amends for her inappropriate behavior. Reviews of Flip-Flop Girl have been mostly positive.
