Review Quotes



A Publishers Weekly Bestseller

"The tone is warm and, occasionally, quirkily funny, but it doesn't sugarcoat the effects of hunger and vulnerability. This novel adds a middle-grade perspective to the literature of imaginary friends and paints a convincing and compassionate portrait of a social class--the working poor--underrepresented in children's books." --The Horn Book, starred review

This accessible and moving novel demonstrates how the creative resilience of a child's mind can soften difficult situations, while exploring the intersection of imagination and truth. --Publishers Weekly, starred review

Children will appreciate this heartbreaking novel...a compelling and unflinchingly honest treatment of a difficult topic. --School Library Journal, starred review

...a quick read that encourages people of all ages to be honest with one another and value family and friends (real and imaginary!) --Booklist
