"I fell in love with Untwine. It's a book I want to give my daughter, my sister, my best friend. Danticat is a master." -- Jacqueline Woodson, National Book Award-winning author of Brown Girl Dreaming
"A genuinely moving exploration of the pain of separation." -- The New York Times Book Review
* "Danticat... shines in this young adult novel... A bit mystery, a bit romance... a touch of humor, well-crafted characters and strong writing make this a book to recommend[.]" -- School Library Journal, starred review
"[T]his tale of grief and resilience should appeal to people who love Danticat's fiction for adults, too[.] Danticat takes several staples of young imaginations (and some old ones, too) -- and spins something beautiful yet down to earth out of each one. While Danticat fully grounds Giselle in her identity as a Haitian-American teen in Miami, this gentle young artist could speak to any teen anywhere coping with a major loss." -- The Philadelphia Inquirer
*"[A]t once heartbreaking and uplifting." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review
"An honest, endearing exploration of family, grief, and perseverance." -- Kirkus Reviews
