Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Karwoski’s research is apparent in the many vivid details of life after the earthquake, but readers will be less concerned with social issues than with the developing stories of the sympathetic characters.” Booklist
“Karwoski’s novel conveys very capably the fear, disorientation, and shock of living through a major disaster and coping with the aftermath…The protagonist is appealingly unvarnished, alternately sweet and angry, open-eyed both to the destruction at large and the smaller scale unhappiness at home since his mother’s death…Quake! combines disaster and family longing for a sturdily constructed and affecting look at the past.” School Library Journal
