Editorial Reviews

Highly readable in style, authentic in detail and tough to put down. The fiction-based-on-fact approach, which uses a lively young character to whom preteens will easily relate, is a perfect way to engage interest and initiate discussion.

— CM Magazine

A moving story that will motivate children, highly recommended.
