Odette's Secrets Reviews
"This is an excellent choice for young readers looking for historical fiction, fiction in verse, Holocaust fiction, or an engaging story of survival and courage. Ages 11 to 15." - VOYA
"Macdonald used the real Odette's auto-biography as the basis for this book, and her free-verse narrative is charming and effective. Although Odette's age is never given, her youthful perspective and the overall nonspecificity about the war, make the book best suited to readers on the younger end of the target audience. Ages 1014" - Publishers Weekly
"Starred Review. Based on the real Odette Meyers (née Melspajz), this thoughtful, affecting piece makes an ideal Holocaust introduction for readers unready for death-camp scenes." - Kirkus
