"Beautiful, moving, hopeful: I loved this book from beginning to end, and will be thinking about it for a long time. It's a total triumph."--Emily Stone, author of Always, In December

"Warm, funny, and bursting with heart, [it's] exactly the book you want to read: a pitch-perfect story about the ways we recover love in the strangest of places."--Rebecca Serle, New York Times bestselling author of In Five Years

"Filled with music, passion, and love of all kinds . . . a fast-paced, emotional novel and an unforgettable exploration of family and the choices we make that shape our lives."--Jill Santopolo, New York Times bestselling author of Everything After

"I burst into tears at the end of Jennifer E. Smith's gorgeous, heartfelt The Unsinkable Greta James--tears of surprised happiness. I loved traveling to Alaska with the wild and tender Greta, and found her escape an addictive journey. I will miss her--and her music--now that I've turned the final beautiful page."--Amanda Eyre Ward, New York Times bestselling author of The Lifeguards

"Thoughtful and tender and true . . . perfectly captures the messiness of loving and being loved . . . Smith has written a gripping relationship story that's also a perceptive exploration of what it means to dream. I devoured it."--Janelle Brown, New York Times bestselling author of I'll Be You

"This novel is unabashedly sentimental in the best possible way. It's about how family can misunderstand us, grief can undo us, and our dreams can save us. It's a total delight, as transporting and diverting as the Alaskan cruise Greta herself is on in these pages."--Christine Pride, co-author of We Are Not Like Them

"Smith has crafted a story about mothers and daughters, fathers and children, grief, happiness, and healing--and also about the music industry, hard work, dreams, and relationships both old and new. . . . Readers of Evvie Drake Starts Over will enjoy this book. A well-told story with evocative prose that bares--and bears--the ragged emotions that accompany a journey to healing."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
