Praise

Praise for The First Day of Spring:

“A darkly dazzling debut, a harrowing story of neglect and cruelty written with a delicate touch and a big heart. As gripping as the tensest of thrillers and as moving and humane as the most intimate of memoirs, I loved this book.” – Lisa Jewell, New York Times bestselling author of The Family Upstairs

“Tense, addictive and powered by an unforgettable narrative voice, The First Day of Spring gives us not just a window into the confused psychology of a child driven to violence, but a thoughtful consideration of the redemptive power of love and friendship.”   —Paula Hawkins, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Girl on the Train

The First Day Of Spring is a gut-wrenching tale about the effects of neglect and loneliness on a child. Eight-year-old Chrissie’s voice is so raw and authentic that I could not stop turning the pages, desperate to find out what she would do next. A harrowing, incisive debut.” – Stephanie Wrobel, author of Darling Rose Gold

“Nancy Tucker has created one of the most unforgettable characters I’ve ever read with a remarkable voice that is both piercing and poetic. The contrast between innocence and evil is breathtaking—I found myself aching for Chrissie/Julia as she learns to survive as a daughter and then mother in a world that has failed her. Chilling, thought-provoking, and compulsively readable, The First Day of Spring is a novel that will break your heart on every page and never leave you. I loved it.” – Ashley Audrain, author of The Push
