Product description

Review

"Smart, likable Cricket is supported by a surfeit of colorful characters and plenty of action.... Caletti [has] exceptional insight into and compassion for her characters..." --"Kirkus Reviews"

* "Caletti's latest Pacific Northwest romance is a stunner, with depth and ambiguity that respects and

challenges the reader.... One of Caletti's best, this is a title to reread and savor." --"Booklist", starred review

"Caletti tosses readers into a story that is fast paced from the get-go. Cricket is very appealing. Her concerns about life's changes feel real; her relationships with her mom and brother are loving and honest... A thoughtful and enjoyable book..." --"School Library Journal"



"Caletti's talent for creating interesting, complex characters and relationships that remind readers of their own families shines through in this novel.... a beautiful, emotion-driven story. This is yet another excellent, family-oriented novel." --thecompulsivereader.com

"Caletti's writing possesses both vigor and perceptivity, with characters brought to vivid life in a quick turn of phrase. Readers uncertain about their own upcoming big moves into adulthood may relate to Cricket's anxiety and applaud her negotiation of a difficult transition." --"Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"

"One thing I could not stress enough is how real this book felt through the way characters acted and interacted with each other. This could be any family. The specific memories made it theirs, but the human interaction that came out through the novel could belong to anyone.... I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, and would recommend it for anyone who enjoys thinking about how we communicate and interact with others, and what it means to grow up." --darkfaerietales.com

"The story is driven by meticulously delineated and authentically imperfect characters--even Jupiter, Cricket's elderly beagle, has a personality all her own--and sharp, clever "Gilmore Girls"-esque dialogue. Cricket's first-person narration is mature and...self-aware; her observations about the nature of family, friendship, and the canine/human connection ring true." --"The Horn Book"

"There is a crowd of characters with a nice variety of simple to complex backstories, all of whom... to have a valid part to play." --"VOYA"

"Thoughtful and poetic... quite moving... a rewarding story of a girl's struggle to live and love in a world of constant change." "--Publishers Weekly"
