“[Sadie’s] a great role model of alternative success for those who don’t always excel academically. Set in coastal Wales, the dialogue is realistic and spiced with enough British colloquialisms to appeal to the growing numbers of teen Anglophile readers.”–Children’s Literature
“Sadie is an endearing character who learns how strong she really is and how
to stand up for herself. A good choice for those not quite ready for Louise Rennison’s Georgia Nicholson novels.”–School Library Journal
