Reviews


"Terrell-Deutsch writes with simplicity and a compassion for her characters that will resonate with readers. The promotion of math as fun stands out as an added bonus. Insightful and sensitive, a solid character study."
"-- Kirkus Reviews"

"Beverley Terrell-Deutsch creates an assortment of characters who become a community of allies, helping and taking help as given, all without looking fragile or debilitated. Problem-solving, whether with numbers or issues, is the means by which fear can be alleviated or at least by-passed. Gregory had the right idea all along. He just forgot that, as in math, reciprocity can lead to balance and progress."
"-- CanLit for Little Canadians"

"Terell-Deutsch does an excellent job of pulling the reader inside Gregory's head, outlining his thought- process and showing the impact of his father's shocking death on his current state of mind. Her writing is clear and concise, and the story moves at a quick pace. The characters are well-developed, and the dialogue, especially between Gregory and Teisha, is fun to read.
