Reviews

Praise for Ruby Lee and Me
"Hitchcock deftly weaves her narrative through history to gently bring important past events to light. Excellently written, the novel's characters avoid stereotyping and are well-developed, and Hitchcock perfectly captures Sarah Beth's voice as she wrestles with big questions. The somber themes of race relations and personal guilt are handled sensitively and with a good dose of flour, courtesy of Sarah Beth's grandmother, and hope for racial healing is offered. A heartening and important offering for younger readers." --Booklist, starred review
"[A story] about sibling love and self-forgiveness." --Kirkus Reviews
"Sarah's inner struggles take place against the background of integration in a rural North Carolina community; Hitchcock . . . depicts her guilt, anger, and grief with credibility and the important people in her life in sympathetic, fully dimensional fashion." --Publishers Weekly
