Review:

"The portrayal of Robyn's family life is realistic and dynamic. Hart's representation of poverty as it intersects with alcoholism is perfectly pitched...Best Laid Plans is a well-written story about a tenacious 18-year-old girl who strives for a better life. Recommended."

(CM Magazine 2009-12-18)

"Robyn's fears and ambitions are relatable." (The Horn Book Guide 2010-09-01)
