Praise for The Jigsaw Jungle:
A 2020–2021 South Carolina Junior Book Award Nominee

An Amazon Best Book of the Month Pick for June 2018 (Ages 9–12)

★ “Levine has created a masterwork of mystery that slowly unravels as Claudia learns more about her father’s life…The biggest trick is Levine’s ability to keep the characters both likable and realistic…Both an excellent read and an excellent puzzle.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review 

“Readers are treated to a fast-paced narrative filled with feeling and subtle family tensions. Levine’s clever mixture of modes—including screenplay, transcripts, text threads, emails, receipts, and first-person narration from Claudia—illustrate beautifully the ways multiple perspectives on a subject can provide a nuanced, vibrant picture.” —School Library Journal

“A gripping middle school adventure.” —The Advocate

“The Jigsaw Jungle is a triumph of a book, portraying sensitive family dynamics in a loving, engaging way.”—Bookpage

“Ingeniously plotted middle-grade novel by Kristin Levine…develops tween and adult characters with compassion and depth, as they evolve a better understanding of a family that can be ‘both great and broken, all at the same time.'” —The Washington Post

“Through the story’s patchwork format, Levine reveals characters’ inner complexities while maintaining tension and uncertainty leading up to the story’s moving revelation. This taut mystery is also a portrait of a family coming to terms with truth and identity.” —Publishers Weekly
