Reviews

"Newbery Honor author Martin (A Corner of the Universe) is extremely successful in capturing Rose's perspective and personality." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"A story about honorable living in the autistic narrator genre that sets the bar high. . . . Martin has penned a riveting, seamless narrative in which each word sings and each scene counts." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Simplicity, clarity, and emotional resonance are hallmarks of Rose's first-person narrative, which offers an unflinching view of her world from her perspective . . . A strong story told in a nuanced, highly accessible way." --Booklist, starred review

"Anna M. Martin, a Newberry Honor winner, offers this affecting, elegantly burnished middle-grade book about a girl with autism. . . . And yet the book isn't actually about autism, or even any coming-of-age theme. It's about love and fealty, fear, hope, the release from burdens, and what kids-all kids-need but often don't get." -The New York Times Sunday Book Review

"Though Rose's story is often heartbreaking, her matter-of-fact narration provides moments of humor. Readers will empathize with Rose, who finds strength and empowerment through her unique way of looking at the world."--School Library Journal, starred review

"Rose is a character we root for every step of the way. She is resilient, honest, and, in her own odd way, very perceptive; a most reliable narrator." --The Horn Book, starred review
