"Paced with the smoothness of flowing maple sugar, this book is to be savored."--SLJ
"As ever, French weaves her storylines deftly...By the time a thriller plot kicks in, readers will be thoroughly embedded."--Kirkus Reviews
"At turns lyrical and stark, Sugaring Off is a foray into the wilderness of New Hampshire's mountains, a sensitive portrait of coming of age in rural America, and a spine-tingling thriller. Gillian French, like Delia Owens and Kristin Hannah, weaves her characters and the natural world they inhabit together masterfully."--Cameron Kelly Rosenblum, author of The Stepping Off Place, a Kirkus Best Book of 2020
"A work of great beauty. Part mystery, part a story of love and loss, it's all heart."--Betty Culley, award-winning author of Three Things I Know Are True
"As in French's other books, she treats her working-class characters with compassion but not preciousness, with a third-person narration that shows the complications of small-town life without exploiting it for drama."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
