"[Alice's] difficulties, along with her steadfast courage, are effectively depicted...The happy outcome of their connection, as Alice describes a 'tingling, bubbling feeling' in her body when their friendship is cemented, makes the journey worthwhile. Insightful and sometimes moving, Alice's evolving coming-of-age provides a perceptive exploration of unexpected friendship in the face of disability."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"Readers look at life through the eyes of Asperger's. The author understands Alice and does an astounding job bringing her to life. Kids will understand and empathize with Alice by book's end. They will also understand a little more about kids like Megan. Understanding can go a long way toward kindness and acceptance, making Everyday Hero a brilliant debut."-- "Kid Lit Reviews"
