Kids today have so many things to deal with that we, now adults, didn't have.  Their stress levels can get really high.They need a little reminder to step back, breath, and relax for a moment. Everybody, adults and children have those moments, even entire days where everything seems to go wrong and the stress level keeps rising.  We all need to stop and take a moment. This is a good book for not only children have stress issues with school, home, and friends but adults as well. Feeling overwhelmed and not knowing what to do first isn't a good feeling. Children need to know, there's nothing wrong with asking for help. .  But that backpack was getting full. It's not a sign of weakness but of strength.  This is what happened to Susannah.Susannah was trying to deal with everything on her own, slipping the things into her backpack for a later date.  Will she realize it is O.K. to ask for help, before the backpack explodes from being too full. You can't run and you can't hide the worries, the feeling of being overwhelmed forever. A little organization goes a long way.   The book is a fun, easy, quick read and allows the reader to relate. Another good children's/adult book from Ms. Roman.  This, I believe is her first short novel written for parents and children. 
I received a copy of this book from the author and voluntarily decided to review it.

I would give this book 5 STARS.
