Publisher's Weekly Starred Review:"Well-grounded in its era and peopled by fully realized characters, the book is a resonant historical novel and a thoughtful exploration of how war and injury affect family, friendships, and individual growth."

 

Horn Book Magazine July/August 2018
"The historical setting and the national arguments about Vietnam swirl around Lucy and Milo as they try to find their places in a world they cannot control, but one in which they can find purpose. Their experience is sometimes heartbreakingly poignant, and the portrait of two children maturing with grace and tolerance is triumphant."

Publisher's Weekly Starred Review: "A lovely and captivating debut...nuanced characters engage from beginning to end."

School Library Journal Starred Review: "The undercurrent theme of loss is balanced well with humor and an authentic protagonist. More than simply a book about grief and the death of a parent, Grace’s story is about the search for identity. An essential purchase for middle-grade collections."
