Reviews

Praise for Backwater...

"Bauer's characters crackle with eccentricity and exhibit glimmers of intense emotion."--Publishers Weekly

Praise for Almost Home by Joan Bauer

"Sugar's voice is convincing, both as storyteller and young writer; her natural good humor shines through what could be a sad story indeed. Quirky supporting characters--both human and dog--add to its appeal. Sugar...will win readers hearts." --Kirkus, starred review

"Sure to inspire..." --Library Media Connection, starred review
