Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

A true evocation of modern ranch life, a life rooted in community and love, a life seldom written about with such grace and authenticity. Molly Gloss, finalist for the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction
Isn’t it wonderful that there are books like this—about good people, about striving, and about doing the right thing! Patricia Reilly Giff, two-time recipient of the Newbery Honor
Starred Review, Horn Book Magazine, May/June 2009:"Brother's honest voice conveys an emotional terrain as thoughtfully developed as Parry's evocation of the Western landscape."
Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, December 1, 2008:“This first novel is an unassuming, transcendent joy.”
