Praise for The Sky Over Rebecca

"Fox crafts a spectacular novel that explores family and friendship--and their importance throughout history and across time . . . . A great read for those intrigued by a unique, genre-mixing exploration of the era and friendship."--School Library Journal

"The exquisitely crafted story feels like gazing into a snow globe, focused on a small slice of one momentous winter. Spare, direct language captures the bleakness of the freezing natural setting and deep loneliness, but it also summons the life-giving warmth of new friendships and tendrils of hope. Readers are quietly given a real sense of danger and high stakes of the situation, and though the premise involves mind-bending time slips and eerie occurrences, it's also gorgeously grounded in the tender relationships between family members and new friends. An edifying exploration of human connection and compassion."--Booklist STARRED Review

"Through Kara's understated voice and the novel's thrilling, quietly building suspense, Fox delivers a thoughtful meditation on the expansiveness of time, melded with Holocaust history and a solitary girl's personal growth, making for an enthralling read."--Publisher's Weekly, STARRED REVIEW

"[an] uplifting story of compassion and courage." --The Daily Express

"A highly atmospheric time-slip adventure with resonant themes of loneliness and courage." --Fiona Noble, The Bookseller

"A sensitively written time-slip debut from an exciting new voice in children's fiction." --Waterstones

"A time-travel story filled with friendship and compassion."--Kirkus Reviews
