Reviews

"Pixie's wry first-person voice aptly conveys her inner turmoil and the flavor and hardship of rural life during World War II, along with a healthy dose of humor. . . . A powerful message of friendship, familial love, faith, and perseverance. Details of life on a farm during the war and the scourge of the polio epidemic are skillfully incorporated into the story. . . . Absorbing read . . . features an appealing heroine."--School Library Journal

"The purposeful setting of the story and the emphasis placed on character development make this a great pick for middle school readers. The subtle lessons drawn from the realities of farm life, jumping to conclusions, taking life in stride, and pushing forward despite grief and heartbreak are all seamlessly woven into the narrative of this touching story."--School Library Connection
