Reviews

"This book goes to the head of the class. Matter of fact, it's in a brand new class of its own. Bell's style of writing is bold and innovative, and thoroughly engaging. What's more, she does an outstanding job capturing the voice and thoughts of a very special little girl named Bonnie. Born prematurely, she may be a little "behind" other children her age, but the wisdom in some of her simplistic insights is startling, and often heart-wrenching. At the centre of this tale is the "badly" journal her parents keep, but Bonnie is the shining star, and it is Bonnie who will linger in your mind and heart." Susan Flett Swiderski, author of Hot Flashes & Cold Lemonade "A curiously captivating read that somehow manages to encapsulate the length and breadth of love and family in one slim volume." Josh Donellan, author of Zeb and the Great Ruckus "The Book is lovely ... sad and tragic and oh, really? Oh, no! Oh my goodness. Little Bonnie wriggles her way into your heart in the very first diary passage when the reader hears her voice for the first time. She is bright and quirky, a funny and unique child with very normal, messed up parents. Oh the poor children with the messed up parents! This novella was reminiscent of both "Room" and "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time," ... A great read, an enchanting child, I had tears in my eyes when it ended. I will be looking for more from this author." Libby Broadbent, author of That Thing That Happened "Jessica Bell's surprising risks with language capture a child's clear vision in a world of adult heartbreak. Indelible. Courageous." Thaisa Frank, author of Heidegger's Glasses and Enchantment "If we're ever going to be awarding someone for literary genius, hands down-feet up I'd nominate Jessica Bell. Wowzer, that chick can write. In just over 100 pages, she tells us a story about a little girl trying to understand what love is ... [Bonnie] is the BEST character I have EVER read about! ... Please, please read this book! I'm practically begging here. And mothers (and fathers) have a box of tissues handy because you'll need it." Read This Hear That Blog
