“A compelling story with dynamic characters. Maxine’s wise-cracking tone, combined with her innocence, is captivating and endearing, and Deke exhibits signs of strength, love, and friendship not often seen in young male characters…A heartwarming story that will appeal to a broad audience.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
