"A remarkable novel. [Heidi's] cross-country journey is brave and daring and yields surprising results." -- New York Times Book Review

"Weeks has a distinctive voice that's all her own. Her fully dimensional characters are remarkable yet believable [and] the foreshadowing builds to a beautifully satisfying ending. This is lovely writing--real, touching, and pared cleanly down to the essentials." -- ALA Booklist (starred review)

"Refreshing, offbeat characters. As the riddle of Heidi's life slowly unfolds, readers will be genuinely touched and surprised." -- VOYA (starred review)

"The heart of the search for home and history is one that readers will find compelling." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Readers will pull for and empathize with the likable characters." -- School Library Journal

"A quick and satisfying tale of love, determination, and the kindness of strangers." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"The novel has enough suspence to draw in mystery fans, while Weeks portrays Heidi's emotional and physical odyssey with admirable economy and restraint." -- Horn Book Magazine (Starred Review)
