Reviews

★ "Drew's prose is direct and descriptive; Mia uses free verse to capture concise moments and feelings. . . . Uplifting."--Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

★ "Via distinct dual perspectives that alternate between Drew's POV, told in compassionate prose, and Mia's, conveyed in rhythmic verse, Vickers (Like Magic) vividly captures one emotionally turbulent summer filled with a friendship's mutual trust and support."--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"Vickers deftly distinguishes between the alternating perspectives by composing Drew's point of view in prose and Mia's chapters in verse. . . . their perceptiveness and the parallels between their concerns about family finances and relationships greatly enhance the emotional appeal of this story."--The Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books
