Bulletin Blue Ribbon Book WINNER 2011
Bank Street Child Study Children’s Book Award NOMINEE
Starred Review, The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, June 2011:
“As she did in Jake (BCCB 12/10), Couloumbis demonstrates her skill at writing with quiet understanding and unstudied polish for younger readers. Her ability to walk through complicated emotional dynamics in kid-accessible language…is impressive, making Lexie a perceptive narrator but not requiring her to be implausibly sophisticated.”
