"Memories and loss juxtapose with curious slices of American roadside kitsch, adding up to a life-affirming, nostalgic adventure with an uplifting finale. The Great Peach Experiment is a cheering middle grade novel about a family's madcap project that includes subtle lessons about overcoming grief."--Foreword Reviews

"Many, many mishaps and adventures follow the Peaches through their Midwest foray, each relayed with understated insight, while the adroit characterization of the self-absorbedly neglectful dad is heart-rending. On occasion, the plot twists veer to the delightfully quirky, and the whole tale is filled with both authenticity and originality. . . . Both bittersweet and uplifting; simply sparkles with life." --Kirkus Reviews

"This coming-of-age novel delves deep into the feelings of all three Peach children and the aftermath of losing such an integral person in the family. . . . A solid purchase for libraries where novels dealing with grief, family, and finding one's voice are needed."--School Library Journal

"readers looking for a pleasing family-themed outing may appreciate the flavor of the Peaches." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"In an enjoyable and accessible middle-grade novel, a grieving family travels the Midwest in a food truck--though they have zero experience--on a journey back to wholeness." --Shelf Awareness
