About the Author

KRISTIN O'DONNELL TUBB is the author of Autumn Winifred Oliver Does Things Different. She describes herself as basically a dork who would still be going to school if they'd let me. But they won't (cause that'd just be weird), so I write instead. All of the research, none of the quizzes. It's heaven! She lives in Tennessee with her family.

Reviews

"Tubb deftly ingrains a thoughtful ethical question into the story (is Hope really helping people by assuaging their fears or simply ripping them off?) But never overdoes it in this bouncy tale populated by a terrific cast of characters." --Booklist, starred review

"[An] oft-engaging, pleasantly romantic romp through a fascinating time in America's entertainment history." --Kirkus Reviews

"Even though readers will anticipate the benign outcome of the fateful date, they'll find themselves drawn in by the countdown to possible doom and intrigued by Tubb's subtle examination of the fine line between offering hope and dealing deceit." --BCCB

"Tubb uses rich historical material well in this clever story... a good show with heroes, villains, and heart." --School Library Journal

"Tubb's inventive heroine comes across as a female version of familiar characters, such as Gary Paulsen's Harris or Robert Newton Peck's Soup. This homespun tale, full of folksy humor and based on historical fact, will appeal to young fans of Deborah Wiles' and Ruth White's books." --Booklist for Autumn Winifred Oliver Does Things Different
