The vivid illustrations in Off the Wall combine with lively prose to bring young readers into Delilah's world. Everyone knows what it feels like to be called a name, but Jillian Green DiGiacomo shows how easy it is for names to become part of one's identity. When Delilah was called a monster, she saw herself as a monster, then she acted like a monster, and finally she became one. But, as Delilah shows readers, no matter how others see you, you can ultimately decide who you want to be.
