"This touching book addresses a ubiquitous question for children of color, and in the end, the closeness between the girl and Abuelo shows that no matter the questions, she knows exactly where she’s from."
"An entertaining read, and a clever reimagining of First Daughter tropes, showing that anyone can be in the White House and have fun doing so."
―School Library Connection
"Although the book begins as a gentle riposte to narrow cultural and ethnic categorizations, its conclusion reaches out to all readers, evoking both heritage and the human family."
