Reviews

"Strays is a coming of age story that is as original as it is revealing, with a heroine who is highly relatable. Author Jennifer Caloyeras' depiction of a young girl's struggles to find a way to move beyond her angst is a refreshingly honest tale which will appeal to readers of all ages...This book is highly recommended." -- Literary Classics "I wholeheartedly recommend this book. Caloyeras captures the angst and discomfort of teenage years, especially for kids who have had a rough childhood. And she weaves into the story some very real dogs, each of whom has come from a punishing life. They are all strays of sorts. And there is hope for all of them." -- Robin Lamont, Our Hen House "There's been much talk about the age-bending popularity of young adult books, and with Strays, a novel by Jennifer Caloyeras, one can readily understand why...an engaging book about a journey of self-discovery that should inspire readers of all ages." -- The Bark magazine
