Reviews

"Trowbridge Road is a luminous, heart-wrenching story that reminds us that love--maybe flawed, maybe messy--is what sustains us. Burbling over with lush details, Marcella Pixley's novel takes the ordinary stuff of life--steam from a bowl of warm pasta, summer sunlight, the bond between two kids burdened by family secrets--and makes it extraordinary."
--Esther Ehrlich, author of Nest

Told from the point of view of the two friends, the narrative is imaginative, flows smoothly, and has you routing for both characters by the end of the story...I truly enjoyed this well-written, plot-driven story and would recommend it for all middle schoolers. The book also reflects the lack of diversity that defined many communities in the 80s. Even though it is a work of historical fiction, there are many lessons in this book that all readers can learn from today.
