Reviews

"A gripping account of the inner turmoil of a child soldier."--New York Times Book Review
"McCormick's novel is one that needs to be read."--The Horn Book
"One of the most inspiring and powerful books I've ever read. Never Fall Down can teach us all about finding the courage to speak our truth and change the world."--Archbishop Desmond Tutu
"Arn Chorn Pond is a fast-talking dynamo with endless energy and zest for life. In Never Fall Down, Patricia McCormick captures brilliantly the man, his heart, and his passion to make Cambodia and our world a better place for all. Arn's against-all-odds survival story and McCormick's crisp prose gripped me from the first page to the very end."--Loung Ung, bestelling author of First They Killed My Father, and Lucky Child
Praise for PURPLE HEART: "McCormick builds the plot subtly and carefully with rich, spare prose."--Kirkus Reviews
Praise for PURPLE HEART: "Gripping details of existence in a war zone bring this to life."--ALA Booklist
"While never shying from the ugliness and brutality of this genocide, McCormick crafts a powerful tribute to the human spirit."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Powerfully, hauntingly unforgettable."--Booklist (starred review)
"This compelling chronicle deserves to be widely read, discussed, and reflected upon by a generation of young people who may be largely unaware of this dark chapter in world history."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)
"Following the pattern of excellence McCormick began with her novel SOLD, she has created another amazing story through skilled and patient research."--Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) (starred review)
Praise for PURPLE HEART: "In this suspenseful psychological thriller...McCormick raises moral questions without judgment and will have readers examining not only this conflict but the nature of heroism and war."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
