A lovely starred review and "highly recommended" from Library Media Connection for Jeannie Mobley's SEARCHING FOR SILVERHEELS! They say, "this is a well-written, compelling story that will have readers laughing out loud, empathizing with Pearl, and longing to know the true story of SILVERHEELS". Hooray! This wonderful middle-grade book is available now. Huge congratulations, Jeannie!
"This beautiful, yet at times brutally vivid, historical verse novel will bring this horrifying, tragic period to life for astute, mature readers who enjoy... THE SURRENDER TREE by Margarita Engle (Holt, 2008) and BETWEEN SHADES OF GREY by Ruth Sepetys (Philomel, 2011)." ~ School Library Journal, starred review. November release.
"Joanne Rocklin has brought into being perhaps the tiniest and most accomplished hero yet: a dashing, erudite, multilingual flea." ~ Wall Street Journal. August release.
