Reviews

Praise for The Life and Crimes of Bernetta Wallflower

"Lighthearted and . . . enlightening."--Kirkus Reviews

"Will enthrall readers."--Publishers Weekly

"This is an entertaining and offbeat outing, following cinematic convention . . . escalating things with cons within cons and subsequent counter-cons . . . [Readers will] relish the twists and turns."--The Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books

"The details of the different scams are fascinating . . . Graff has created an original, dimensional heroine in Bernetta."--Booklist

"The characters are well drawn, and Bernetta's growing qualms of conscience are believable. Readers will appreciate the well-constructed plot and intriguing snippets of magic slipped in here and there."--School LIbrary Journal

"Graff successfully diverts the reader's attention in order to spring several surprises along the way while still making Bernetta a genuine and likable character."--The Horn Book
