Praise for Cheating for the Chicken Man

* "Kate's perspective is authentic. Especially for readers who enjoyed Red Kayak, this novel is an engaging choice that offers a different perspective on a tragic event." --School Library Connection, starred review

"Realistically presenting the situational rather than absolute nature of some difficult choices, this engrossing novel provides lots to ponder and discuss." --Kirkus Reviews

"Cummings conveys a strong sense of rural Maryland, along with the hard choices faced by families who run company-owned poultry farms. Leaving no pat answers, and plenty to discuss, the book should find a broad audience." --Booklist

"The familiar moral dilemmas of bullying and cheating are raised with enough complexity to make this a good choice to share with small groups of readers." --VOYA

Praise for Priscilla Cummings' The Red Kayak and The Journey Back

A Bank Street College "Best Children's Books of the Year for 2013"
An ALA Best Book for Young Adults 2006
A New York Public Library Book for the Teen Age, 2005
VOYA's Review Editor's Choice List, 2005

"Cummings has created a multifaceted story that is as much about the families and life in the Chesapeake as it is about a prank gone awry....This well-crafted novel will have broad appeal." --School Library Journal on Red Kayak

"With this finely crafted novel, Cummings firmly establishes herself as an outstanding writer for early teens. The writing here is direct and clear; the setting, characterizations, and voice ring with authenticity; the situation is tense and the stakes high." --VOYA on Red Kayak

"This high-action journey has suspense to spare." --Booklist on The Journey Back
