Product Details

Praise

★ ”Thoughtful explorations of issues such as corporate greed, the opioid crisis, water rights, and the little-known history of Affrilachians abound in this outstanding novel. An emotionally resonant narrative skillfully connecting the past, present, and future.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Explores serious and urgent subjects, including gentrification, class, environmental racism, police brutality and sexual identity. Moore’s sophisticated story raises as many questions as it answers, making the point that issues around American history, identity and injustice are neither simple nor straightforward.”—The New York Times

★ “Moore covers timely social issues in this richly wrought fish-out-of-water story that takes a 12-year-old Brooklynite gamer to Appalachia.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Moore packs his narrative with themes and carries it all off with well-rounded characters, lively dialogue and action, and often beautiful sensory prose.” —The Horn Book

“A compelling and timely read.” —Booklist

Outstanding. Moore’s thoughtful approach to big ideas is honest and his text attends to the topics in a way that allows middle-grade readers to understand and older readers to relate. Holler of the Fireflies is a feel-good book that still manages to go deep into heavy topics. Profound.” —Shelf Awareness
