Dyamonde Daniel has her eye on a new pair of red high-top sneakers. Following some bad advice from a classmate, she thinks she has the right idea to go about getting them – by demanding her mother buy them! Unfortunately for Dyamonde, Mrs. Daniel doesn’t appreciate being told what to do and decides to teach her daughter a lesson. Soon Dyamonde finds herself in a clothing crisis, with almost zero to wear! Dyamonde is furious. But she begins to realize that some people have troubles much greater than hers…including her friend, Isabel Martinez, whose family has suffered a real crisis. Deciding she must she must help the Martinez family, Dyamonde enlists the aid of everyone she knows to do so. Witty and endearing, this heart-warming tale – told by Nikki Grimes herself – beautifully displays the difference between “wanting” and “needing.”

“The story is read by author Grimes, who uses a slow and measured voice to describe how Dyamonde comes to realize not only what she really needs but what others do as well. Grimes’ tone clearly conveys the emotions of the characters without going over the top.” — Booklist, May 15, 2014
