Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Immensely satisfying, heartfelt, and lyrical…Sloan succeeds in skillfully combining the tenderness of young love, various distinct voices, and fast-paced action.” School Library Journal
“Destinies collide in Sloan’s thrilling sequel to her heart-wrenching I’ll Be There. The fast-paced plot, complex story lines, and compelling characters grab readers from the get-go.” Booklist
“Lively, tender, and satisfying.” Horn Book Guide
“An ultimately hopeful message about how friendships and families can form..” Kirkus Reviews
“Teens Sam and Emily found each other in I’ll Be There. Now, Laura Jennings’s deliberately paced narration highlights their deep emotions as their blossoming relationship is threatened. Jennings’s quiet, even delivery suits the serious teenagers…Jennings’s gruff timbre and somber tone are well suited to many of the characters and the tension that arises…Through the climax, Jennings’s pace never wavers, allowing profound emotions like fear and desperation to shine without being overshadowed by melodramatics. Listeners will find themselves absorbed by this compelling novel, and though the experience would be heightened by listening to the first one, it’s not necessary.” AudioFile
“Strong dialogue and genuine emotional concern…make this a heart-warming novel…Definitely a book worth the read.” VOYA
