Reviews

"The lyrical prose style is reminiscent of Delia Owens's Where the Crawdads Sing but the suspension of disbelief and ability to connect to the wacky characters is what readers will find most engaging about the story."--School Library Journal


"A moving and heart-felt story of family and community, and the symbiotic ways the two can shape and sustain one another. Set in Crystal Springs, Louisiana, the novel explores the entire family and neighborhood dynamic through the eyes of its big-hearted narrator, fifteen-year-old James."- Jo Watson Hackl, Author of Smack Dab in the Middle of Maybe, Winner, Southern Book Prize for Children's Literature

"The Art of Dumpster Diving packs a wallop. Two brothers are orphaned in Louisiana, in the mystical, often shady town of Crystal Springs. Their fight to stay together despite trauma, abandonment, and death is at turns poignant and hilarious. Jennifer Anne Moses is a wonder, an author who can conjure the worst and yet bring the story into the light, and with it, her reader. Glorious storytelling in an authentic voice."- Adriana Trigiani New York Times bestselling author of Big Stone Gap and Tony's Wife

"This dialogue-driven exploration of coming of age in a small town in Louisiana will have readers asking for more." - School Library Journal
