The Matchbox Diary Reviews
"Starred Review. Fleischman's voice for the girl's great-grandfather is instantly engrossing, free of self-pity and resonant with resilience and gratitude...A powerful introduction to the American immigrant story, and fine inspiration for a classroom project." - Publishers Weekly
"Starred Review. Writing entirely in dialogue, Fleischman employs a natural and believable matter-of-fact tone that provides a fresh view of the immigrant experience, as the humble objects and their stories form the beginning of a loving bond between the little girl and her great-grandfather...Captivating and powerful." - Kirkus
