"Stunning . . . By turns tough and tender, this novel leavens complex themes with moments of wonder and joy." --The Washington Post

"Rarely is a children's book so honest . . . [and] daring. But there is comfort too, in Ada's desire to love and grow. . . . The power of this book is that it describes, slowly and sometimes painfully, that it is possible not just to live through pain, but to live with it." --The New York Times

★ "Thoughtful, brave, true, and wise beyond her years, Ada is for the ages--as is this book. Wonderful." --Kirkus, starred review

"It's rare when a sequel is just as beautifully written and just as touching (maybe even more so) than the first book. . . . Bradley writes the story in such a way that the reader is by turns both touched and then, pages later, heartbroken. Over and over." --HuffPost

★ "Fans of the first book will love the sequel even more; truly a first purchase. While it stands alone, encourage readers to read both books to fully appreciate Ada's remarkable and wholly believable triumph." --School Library Journal, starred review

"Harrowing and heartening." --San Francisco Chronicle

★ "Bradley sweeps us up in the story she's telling and at the same time raises hard questions and makes us think--even as she moves us to tears." --The Horn Book, starred review

★ "A perceptive look into othering . . . Bradley sensitively portrays Ada's journey to accept selfless kindness and love after years of neglect in a poignant and satisfying story of found family that will stay with readers." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Ada . . . is one of the most unforgettable characters in modern children's literature." --The Washington Post

"In a hard times, complicated people do the best they can. That's what we see in this bittersweet moving story . . . (Be prepared for both tears and smiles with this one!)" --ImaginationSoup

"Ada's story is a winning combination of history and healing, and fans may hope that Bradley isn't quite finished with her just yet." --Booklist
