Reviews

It's not easy to keep such a young narrator convincing for more than 300 pages... Readers will take to Starla and be caught up in her story.--Mary Ellen Quinn "Booklist "
"Crandall delivers big with a coming-of-age story set in Mississippi in 1963 and narrated by a precocious 9-year-old...Young Starla is an endearing character whose spirited observations propel this nicely crafted story."--Kirkus
"A coming-of-age story as well as a luminous portrait of courage and the bonds of friendship. . . Susan Crandall tells young Starla's story with pitch-perfect tone, evoking 1963 Mississippi and its struggles with a deft hand. I laughed and cried at Starla's keen observances of life and family and the sometimes blurred edges of justice. Like Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird and Kathryn Stockett's The Help, Whistling Past the Graveyard is destined to become a classic."--New York Times bestselling author Karen White
"Starla's fiery independence makes her a likable narrator."--Publishers Weekly
