Praise

Praise for Almost Home by Joan Bauer

“Sugar’s voice is convincing, both as storyteller and young writer; her natural good humor shines through what could be a sad story indeed. Quirky supporting characters—both human and dog—add to its appeal. Sugar…will win readers hearts.” —Kirkus, starred review

“sure to inspire” —Library Media Connection, starred review

“Bauer’s trademark humor lightens the serious subject matter, while Sugar’s frank honesty will give young readers a glimpse at a situation affecting a growing number of children.” —Booklist

“Sugar’s anger, fear, humility, and resolve are portrayed with insight and compassion.” —Publishers Weekly

“a memorable novel” —School Library Journal

“Almost Home… skillfully tells the tale of precocious and street-smart Sugar Mae Cole.” —New York Times Book Review

“While Bauer fans will definitely want to get their paws on this one, there’s plenty of realism here to draw a wider crowd.” —BCCB
