Praise

Praise for THE RISE AND FALL OF CHARLES LINDBERGH:

“There is no amped up moralizing in this fascinating chronicle…Reprehensible, estimable, complex: Ms. Fleming’s portrait reveals a man of many parts.” —The Wall Street Journal

“Absorbing and distressing in turns, this utterly prescient capture of a life—and the lives it influenced—is essential in classrooms and for history buffs alike.” —Booklist, starred review

“A compelling biography of a flawed, larger-than-life man.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“A must-read. Drawing on primary sources, including Lindbergh’s own journal, Fleming has crafted a cautionary tale of the downfalls of hero worship.” —School Library Journal, starred review

“[A] smoothly written, even-handed biography.” —The Bulletin, starred review
 
“A historical narrative that couldn’t feel more contemporary.” —The Horn Book, starred review
 
“A comprehensive picture of a well-known, controversial man.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review


Praise for THE FAMILY ROMANOV:

“A remarkable human story, told with clarity and confidence.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“A wonderful introduction to this era in Russian history and a great read for those already familiar with it.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“For readers who regard history as dull, Fleming’s extraordinary book is proof positive that, on the contrary, it is endlessly fascinating, absorbing as any novel, and the stuff of an altogether memorable reading experience.” —Booklist, starred review

“Fleming has outdone herself with this riveting work of narrative nonfiction that appeals to the imagination as much as the intellect.” —The Horn Book, starred review

This is both a sobering work, and the account of the discovery of their bones and the aftermath is at once fascinating and distressing. A solid resource and good recreational reading for high school students.” —School Library Journal, starred review

“With comprehensive source notes and bibliographies of print and online materials, this will be a boon to student researchers, but it’s also a heartbreaking page-turner for YAs who prefer their nonfiction to read like a novel.” —The Bulletin, starred review
