Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Lowry writes with simplicity and sensitivity, bringing Lydia’s world to life through concrete details and making the child’s resilience entirely believable.”  Booklist
“Sara Barnett is a fresh, earnest narrator. With an unpretentious voice and steady pacing she maintains the intensity of Lydia’s observations on her new life. Portraying a girl who is experiencing so much change, Barnett is sad but never maudlin, complimentary but never saccharine.”  AudioFile
“As befits the setting and subject, the narrative is simple and heartfelt, presenting a snapshot of a unique American community.”  Kirkus Reviews
