Fresh and wonderfully readable . . . perfect for parents eager to cultivate their kids’ fantasy lives and foster a passion for literature.–Michelle Green, People

“The implications of this small book are quite large. Parents will want to read it, as will writers, publishers and educators.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

“I loved this book. Feinberg is a brave woman to challenge every shibboleth of the schools of education.”–Diane Ravitch, author of The Language Police

Welcome to Lizard Motel turns out to be more than a diatribe against the dark subject matter of YA problem novels . . . Only a reader as attuned to realism as Feinberg could have puzzled out so nuanced a defense of imagination in children’s lives.”–Laura Miller, New York Times Book Review

“When we place the steady diet of ‘problem’ novels in the context of the hours children spend being electronically bombarded by graphic, unremitting trauma, Feinberg’s concerns . . . become not just comprehensible, but urgent.”–Susan Linn, Boston Globe
