“[T]he strength of even imperfect human connections is celebrated through the relationships among a multitude of vivid and varied characters.” BCCB
Lyrical writing in this first-person narrative, good character development, and a sympathetic heroine will keep readers absorbed.”School Library Journal
Sparrow Road is a book that strikes—and gentles—with Truth. Here is a world of Sorrow and Comfort, crafted by an artist who dares to suggest, without sentimentality but with a hard-nosed realism, that a broken world can be renewed through love and daring and community and art. What a sweet and hopeful and engaging story.” – Gary D. Schmidt, Newbery Honor-winning author of Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy and The Wednesday Wars
Sparrow Road is a place for wishing long and dreaming, and so is this terrific novelSparrow Road is quite wonderful and I recommend it highly.” – Karen Cushman author of the Newbery Medal-winning, The Midwife’s Apprentice, and the Newbery Honor-winning Catherine, Called Birdy
Sparrow Road has everything I could ask for in a novel – mysteries, secrets, a creepy mansion with a haunting past, a cast of unforgettable characters, and a twisting tale of self-discovery.” – Ann Martin, Newbery Honor-winning author of A Corner of the Universe
