* "If Scout Finch had had a sister, she would be future "world-famous lawyer" Guinevere St. Clair....With the same nostalgia-tinged humor as Dead End in Norvelt and A Long Way from Chicago, Makechnie's debut will have readers in stitches. Gwyn's voice is distinct and likable, carrying readers through the eventful narrative with ease. Guinevere St. Clair is indeed 100 percent unforgettable."--Kirkus Reviews - STARRED review "April 2018 "
5/5 stars. "Author Amy Makechnie's debut novel is rich and complex, filled with extraordinary characters and gorgeous writing. This is a book that will challenge young readers to examine their own thinking about many things and to open their hearts and minds to those who are different from them. There is a lot of truth and honesty about the important things in life in this lovely book. It deserves readership well beyond its targeted middle-grade audience."--The San Francisco Book Review
"Spirited and layered...Makechnie's novel is a big-hearted adventure about coming home."--Publisher's Weekly "April 16, 2018 "
"The underlying mystery keeps the pages turning...A promising debut"--School Library Journal "March 2018 "
* "The smart dialogue and flowing description...highlights the eccentric, yet wholly believable characters. This is part mystery, part study of the human heart, and one pierced with rays of hope. Everyone here, adults and children, have lessons they need to learn, and first-time novelist Makechnie offers them those paths, in startling ways."--Booklist - Starred Review "June 1, 2018 "
