Reviews

* "Strong's prose pours from her pen like iced sweet tea on an August afternoon--it's refreshing, steeped in tradition, and mixed with love. A stirring Southern middle-grade book that burns brighter than fireworks on the Fourth."--Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW
* "Strong's prose presents a world so real readers will feel the warm Georgia breeze, or the haints' chilling breath down your neck....Readers will need a sweet tea to calm their nerves after this emotional adventure. First purchase for all collections."--School Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW
* "Strong packs a lot of heart into this vivid debut about love, family, forgiveness, and the kinds of horrors few can scarcely conceive....Free-flowing dialogue, a rich story line, and warm characters nicely ground the more supernatural elements. This is a must for readers who appreciate a heartfelt mystery."--Booklist, STARRED REVIEW
"Readers of Turnage's Three Times Lucky will appreciate this well-wrought, atmospheric mystery."--BCCB
