Media Reviews

"By the end, a smart young girl learns compassion for a world that can be grotesquely, hilariously, disturbingly unfair." - PW.
"Lipman skillfully matches the cadence of Frederica's growing up with the developments of the story to create moments to cherish and characters to adore." - Booklist.
"Lipman (The Pursuit of Alice Thrift) creates that rare blend of no-nonsense compassion and believable, offbeat innocence that is completely irresistible." - Kirkus.
