Reviews

"Poignant and powerful. A heartbreaking story about the healing power of friendship amid human fragility.--ALA Booklist (starred review)
"[A] lyrical story of love and loss. The way the sisters fight and love in equal measure, as well as their basic need for one another, rings poignantly true in this touching and heartwarming story, which contains a 'tiny bit of magic, right here in the real world."--ALA Booklist (starred review)
"An emotionally complex and wonderfully told story."--School Library Journal (starred review)
"In this moving, exquisitely written story, Corey Ann Haydu explores the thin line between science and magic within an intense bond of friendship."--Shelf Awareness (starred review)
Praise for Rules for Stealing Stars:
"A well-crafted blend of realism and fantasy."

--School Library Journal (starred review)
A nuanced look at the girls' friendship, emotions, and motivations. A transitional chapter book with unusual depth, good pacing, and a loving, supportive Latinx family. Libraries should find space on their shelves for this new series.
--Booklist
Praise for Eventown: "A wonderful and inventive story about being a kid in an imperfect world--beautiful, mysterious, and deeply satisfying."--Rebecca Stead, author of When You Reach Me and Goodbye Stranger
Praise for Hand-Me-Down Magic #1: "Haydu, author of OCD Love Story and other compelling works, offers a pleasing setup in this first volume of a new series. Reading is swift and accessible, broken up by copious cheerful illustrations, and youngsters will long to share in the cousins' idyllic family life while understanding the pitfalls of propinquity." --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
This series debut is a sweet tale about friendship, family, and being the new kid on the block... The line-drawing illustrations throughout give a glimpse of the street where the girls live... Put this book in the hands of kids who enjoy series like Annie Barrows's "Ivy and Bean" or Megan McDonald's "Judy Moody."--School Library Journal
"At once enchanting, heart-rending, and bittersweet."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"[A] thought-provoking novel... [A] memorable and brave heroine."
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Praise for The Someday Suitcase:
"Quietly superb prose...Haydu doesn't romanticize illness, but she provides comfort through art, science, magic, love, and a purple suitcase."
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
