PRAISE FOR DANETTE VIGILANTE

“Readers cannot help but cheer for Dellie and the little boy who helps pull her family together. Rich secondary characters add depth and dimension to this fast-paced tale of bereavement, forgiveness and healing.”—Kirkus Reviews

“What will grab readers in this first novel is realistic sense of the diverse neighborhood community, both rough and caring. With lots of fast, immediate dialouge, the characters’ grief, anger, and heartbreaking coming-to-terms are realistic.”—Booklist

“Vigilante has a nice way with subplots and solid daily life details that bring the book particular warmth…the story is told with considerable appeal and accessibility, and kids won’t have to lead the same life as Dellie to recognize her travails.”—BCCB

“Dellie’s story will speak to young people who’ve needed a little faith to get them through tough times. Interesting scenarios, like the cloaked Jamaican woman who moves in next door, provide interest to an already well-developed story.”—School Library Journal
