Praise

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, April 15, 2010:
“Sweet, funny and superb”

Starred Review, Booklist, April 15, 2010:
“Turtle is just the right mixture of knowingness and hope; the plot is a hilarious blend of family dramas seasoned with a dollop of adventure.”

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly:
“This humorous adventure effectively portrays Turtle as caught between her mother’s Hollywood-inspired dreams and the very real family . . . that offer a different kind of paradise.”

Review, School Library Journal, April 2010:
“This richly detailed novel was inspired by Holm’s great-grandmother’s stories. Readers who enjoy melodic, humorous tales of the past won’t want to miss it.”
