Reviews

"Readers seeking a title that touches on the environment, pollution, and the interconnectedness of life will find many educational moments woven into this gentle tale. A quiet story to spark conversation about conservation and community." -- Kirkus Reviews

"The town of Arden and its population of quirky townsfolk come alive through Griffith's vibrant prose and specific details. This compelling story about the power of putting down roots will speak to anyone who has ever felt a little (or a lot) out of place." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"The story works on multiple levels; loner Holly must navigate new relationships and reexamine existing ones, all while learning about civic engagement and ecology. Hand this book to young readers who love realistic fiction and want to save the planet." -- School Library Journal

"Holly is a well-drawn, likable protagonist dropped into a New England setting, where she thrives. A gentle, uplifting, and memorable story." -- Horn Book Magazine
