Selected, CBC’s Next Chapter with Shelagh Rogers’s list of Best Summer Reads for Children and Teens, 2015


“This is a nicely paced story with solid characters …. The narrative remains compelling …. [and] will be a solidly satisfying read for many middle school girls.” – School Library Journal


“McNicoll’s story addresses a slew of important issues – including racism, self-perception, intergenerational culture clashes, bullying, and selflessness – via an engaging, multilayered plot that will give readers much to ponder. It is also refreshing to see characters from diverse cultures presented realistically, something that is still sorely lacking from most children’s fiction.” – Quill & Quire


“Influenced by the true story of a teenager who died at a railway crossing, Sylvia McNicoll has written a supernatural fiction that aims to fill in the blanks of a tragic death …. The tone is fresh and feels present-day appropriate, challenging stereotypes, racism and how families integrate into Canadian culture. Don’t be fooled by the cover; this novel takes place largely after death has occurred, though it remains lively throughout.” – The Globe and Mail

“Celebrated writer Sylvia McNicoll’s latest book is Best Friends Through Eternity (February), about a teen who is hit by a train and transported to a surreal world where she meets another girl who’d been killed years before.”
—    “Most Anticipated: 2015 Kids’ Books Spring Preview”, 49th Shelf
