“Ruby Small and her three identical dolls, each named Jennifer, feel uneasy with life in a home where dad sculpts topiaries and mom designs tiaras for the family business, Sprigs & Sparkles. A misunderstanding leads to a family vacation in Norway. When an adoring, newly calved glacier insists on following them home, Ruby learns that being different isn't really a bad thing, especially when someone loves you very, very much.”
— Stacie M. Williams, Boswell Book Company, Milwaukee, WI
