Praise

“Memories and loss juxtapose with curious slices of American roadside kitsch, adding up to a life-affirming, nostalgic adventure with an uplifting finale. The Great Peach Experiment is a cheering middle grade novel about a family’s madcap project that includes subtle lessons about overcoming grief.”—Foreword Reviews
 
“Many, many mishaps and adventures follow the Peaches through their Midwest foray, each relayed with understated insight, while the adroit characterization of the self-absorbedly neglectful dad is heart-rending. On occasion, the plot twists veer to the delightfully quirky, and the whole tale is filled with both authenticity and originality. . . . Both bittersweet and uplifting; simply sparkles with life.” —Kirkus Reviews

“This coming-of-age novel delves deep into the feelings of all three Peach children and the aftermath of losing such an integral person in the family. . . . A solid purchase for libraries where novels dealing with grief, family, and finding one’s voice are needed.”—School Library Journal

“readers looking for a pleasing family-themed outing may appreciate the flavor of the Peaches.”The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
 
“In an enjoyable and accessible middle-grade novel, a grieving family travels the Midwest in a food truck–though they have zero experience–on a journey back to wholeness.”Shelf Awareness
