Reviews

"Set in contemporary Harlem, this sequel to The Vanderbeekers of 141st Street (2017) includes a large cast of memorable characters, old and new, each with a different role to play. Glaser is at her best in the interplay of well-developed personalities and the entertaining dialogue among the children, their friends, and their elders...An amusing, heartening chapter book." -- Booklist

"The plot and endearing (and diverse) characters are reminiscent of the classics from the 1940s and 1950s but with refreshing and realistic attention to socio-economics at work...Perfect for individual reading while tucked away in a treehouse or as a family read-aloud." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Timeless." -- Horn Book Magazine

"Glaser tackles the tough issues of loss, serious health crises, and urban gentrification with grace and authenticity...An excellent sequel and highly recommended purchase for all middle grade collections." -- School Library Journal
