Praise

Prasie for The Whispers:

“This taut, moving tale delves beyond loss into issues of sexuality, conformity and self-acceptance…a masterful exploration into the power of storytelling but also its dangers, including self-denial and escapism.” —The New York Times Book Review

“A realistic tale of coming to terms and coming-of-age, of friendship and loss, with a touch of magic and humor.”—Kirkus

“We’re predicting this emotional story will be an award winner.” —Parents Magazine
 
A touching story of grief and healing.” —Booklist
 
“This touching, often wry novel offers a memorable psychological puzzle and explores grief and acceptance.” —Publishers Weekly
 
“[Riley’s] a thoroughly sympathetic [narrator], and it’s easy to root for his eventual understanding of the truth—and of his own blamelessness.” —Horn Book Magazine
 
“…an inspired and sensitive portrait of childhood traumatic grief.” —Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
