Winnner of the Josette Frank Award
This award for fiction honors a book of outstanding literary merit in which children or young people deal in a positive and realistic way with difficulties in their world and grow emotionally and morally.

“Van Draanen’s engaging story is characterized by clever writing, a palpable affection for her characters, and a deep understanding of what’s important about life. Readers will love Lincoln Jones.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Van Draanen skillfully wraps up her tale, offering a realistically happy ending. A story with a perfect balance of mirth and poignancy.” — School Library Journal

“Van Draanen effectively portrays the frustrations of aging and memory loss through a mix of humor, sharp-eyed observations, and compassion. It’s a moving coming-of-age story about creating new and unexpected connections.” — Publishers Weekly

“Lincoln is a delightful narrator.” — Booklist

“A sweet and ultimately positive family drama.” — Bulletin
