Praise

Silver Meadows Summer, beautiful and wise, is a gem of a book. Its characters are sparkling and unique, its themes utterly universal. We are lucky to have Emma Otheguy writing books for children . . . and for all of us.” —Adam Gidwitz, Newbery Honor–winning author of The Inquisitor’s Tale

“Emma Otheguy’s exquisitely poetic novel, Silver Meadows Summer, is an absolute joy to read. Summertime becomes a magical season of discovery in her beautifully conjured and unforgettable story of immigration and hope for new beginnings. Every reader will fall in love with Carolina and her tender quest to create a home of the heart in an abandoned cottage in New York’s woodlands after losing homes in both Cuba and Puerto Rico. Daring to address vulnerability on the deepest level, this novel cultivates empathy and compassion. With its stunning evocation of the poems of Frost and Machado, its attention to family ties and class tensions, and its faith in friendships that create cultural bridges, Silver Meadows Summer is a magnificent contribution to the diversity of the new American literature for young readers.”
—Ruth Behar, author of Lucky Broken Girl

Silver Meadows Summer is a delightful story . . . framed by nostalgia and questions of identity.” —Margarita Engle, Young People’s Poet Laureate and Newbery Honor–winning author of The Surrender Tree
