Praise

Praise for Takedown:

“As the chapters alternate between the characters’ perspectives, readers will quickly become invested, particularly when the tweens’ goals eventually merge and they discover that a true wrestler is anyone with the courage to step on the mat.” —Booklist
 
“Mikayla and Lev are winners.” —Kirkus Reviews
 
“The characters are in their first year of middle school, which will appeal to both upper elementary and younger middle school audiences. . . . A solid choice.” —School Library Journal


Honors and Praise for The Last Fifth Grade of Emerson Elementary:

Winner of a Cybils Award in Poetry
An NCTE Notable Verse Novel
A Bank Street College of Education Best Children’s Book of the Year

“This gently evocative study of change in all its glory and terror would make a terrific read-aloud or introduction to a poetry unit. A most impressive debut.” —School Library Journal
