Reviews

β˜… "Through the precocious Jinny, Snyder delivers a contemplative commentary on the transition from childhood to adolescence, and from ignorance to awareness."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Laurel Snyder has written a story that curls around the heart and pulls in tight--a meditation on the power and wisdom and closeness and sorrow of childhood. A wondrous book, wise and wild and deeply true. I loved every second of it."--Kelly Barnhill, Newbery Medal-winning author of The Girl Who Drank the Moon
"An elegant and thoughtful meditation on the joys and sorrows of growing up, with lyrical prose, characters that feel as alive as your dearest friends, and a vivid setting sure to enchant young readers. A work of extraordinary heart."--Claire Legrand, author of Some Kind of Happiness
"A visionary, poignant, astonishingly lovely fable of childhood and change. This is a book to lose yourself in, and to never forget."--Anne Ursu, author of The Real Boy
"Orphan Island is a masterpiece--both timeless and immediate. Snyder's book, like the island within it, contains all of the joys, wonders, and terrors of childhood. Every young reader needs this book; every grown reader needs it even more."--Jonathan Auxier, New York Times bestselling author of The Night Gardener
This charming, engrossing tale set in a vividly realized world is expertly paced and will appeal to fans of wilderness adventure stories and character-driven relationship novels alike.--Kirkus Reviews
