Review:

An Amazon Best Book of the Year
A VOYA Perfect Ten

“The strength of this novel lies in the insight Tate develops as she deals with tragedy and depends on the love of family. VERDICT Artfully told, this middle grade novel pleases on many levels.” ―Maria LaRocco, Cuyahoga Public Library, Strongsville, OH, School Library Journal

“Soulful and satisfying.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“This book packs more emotional power than 90% of the so-called grown-up novels taking up precious space on bookshelves around the country.” ―USA Today on When Zachary Beaver Came to Town

“Holt may not take her readers on wild flights of fantasy, but her quiet novel offers a slice of life that's hard to resist.” ―The New York Times Book Review on When Zachary Beaver Came to Town

“In her own down-to-earth, people, smart way, Holt offers a gift. . . . It is a lovely--at times even giddy--date with real life.” ―The Horn Book, starred review on When Zachary Beaver Came to Town

“An unusually auspicious debut.” ―Publishers Weekly, starred review on My Louisiana Sky

“This lyrical first novel brings fresh perspective to the guilt and anger and caring that surround the mentally disabled. All the characters . . . are drawn with warmth but no patronizing reverence.” ―Booklist, starred review on My Louisiana Sky

“Evocative . . . haunting . . . magic.” ―Publishers Weekly, starred review on Keeper of the Night

“Beautifully written.” ―School Library Journal, starred review on Keeper of the Night
