"Helping others helps you too' is Weston's essential message, and her story ably illustrates the point." - Kirkus
"Family dynamics, friendship tangles, and finding one's voice are among the topics Weston deftly juggles in this diary-style series debut... palindromes, similes, and a running emphasis on creative writing will excite readers. " - Publishers Weekly
"Readers will relate to Ava's situation, doing the wrong thing for the right reasons to protect her sister. But it is how she remedies the situation with Bea's help that will have readers cheering. Fans of diary-style novels will enjoy this story, and readers who love to play with words will be searching for more palindromes." - Booklist
"Ava is a winning protagonist... Helping others helps you too' is Weston's essential message, and her story ably illustrates the point." - Kirkus
"Carol Weston is no stranger to the way young people interact with one another. Her insight into how it feels to be shy, how it feels to be ignored by your parents and how to make friends make her characters pop on the page... Ava's voice is so unique, energetic, and poignant; she will stick with readers even after they finish the final page.

"You're gonna fall head over heels for the new book "Ava and Pip"." - GirlsLife.com
"This book is fun and educational while being realistic too. It portrays schools for what they really are - buildings often filled with kids who like to pick on others - and offers a way to deal with such a thing. It also emphasises how important words are, and how anything written down can be there forever, always ready to rear its positive or negative head. " - Wondrous Reads
"This is an excellent book for children to read by themselves or for parents to read along with their children. Teachers and counselors can use the book as a discussion builder on the power of words and of misinterpretation. I give a Y-A-Y for "Ava and Pip"." - Good Reads with Ronna
