It's a starred review from Publisher's Weekly for Trent Reedy's BURNING NATION! They praise the second installment of the Divided We Fall trilogy for opening "with a bang" and say "Reedy spins an action-packed cautionary tale, allowing both state and federal viewpoints their strengths and weaknesses, stopping just short of condemning both sides while acknowledging the validity of their arguments. It's a complex story rooted in current events, all the more worrisome for its plausibility." Look for this one next month. Congratulations, Trent!
The fast-paced, ingenious plot, charismatic hero and highly diverse cast of characters—including the ancient, eternal city itself—make this series opener a captivating joy ride. ~ Kirkus Reviews, starred review. February 2015 release.
Praise for the Ellie McDoodle series: “Part journal, part graphic novel, all fun (with echoes of HARRIET THE SPY), this is a clever account of a growing-up experience that is familiar to middle-grade readers.” —Kirkus Reviews. September release.
