Reviews

A Printz Award Honor Book
Carnegie Medal Winner, United Kingdom
A 2011 ALA Popular Paperbacks Title


"A contemporary classic. Jennifer Donnelly is the master of historical fiction!" ---Ruta Sepetys, New York Times best-selling author and winner of the Carnegie Medal

Starred Review This is a breathtaking tale, complex and often earthy ... Donnelly's characters ring true to life, and the meticulously detailed setting forms a vivid backdrop to this finely crafted story.
--School Library Journal

Starred Review ... (an) ambitious, beautifully written coming-of-age story ... Many teens will connect with Mattie's fierce yearning for independence and for stories, like her own, that are frank, messy, complicated and inspiring. --Booklist

A Northern Light is a quintessential coming-of-age story ... exceptionally well told. Honest and unflinching in its portrayal of loss, poverty, racism, and pregnancy, it nonetheless avoids melodrama and polemic. --Christian Science Monitor
