“…[Law’s] a natural storyteller who’s created a vibrant and cinematic novel that readers are going to love.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Law’s storytelling is rollicking, her language imaginative, and her entire cast of whacky, yet believable characters delightful…wholly engaging and lots of fun.”
Booklist, starred review

“Much like authors Deborah Wiles or Patricia Reilly Giff, Law contrasts warm family support with personal despair and hardship, nicely balancing her dramatic action with stability and optimism….Law has again told a story with as much heart as creativity.” —School Library Journal

“Law tenderly handles the challenges of having a grandparent with Alzheimer’s, highlighting the
power of familial love… Readers will be caught up in this snowy, magical adventure and the characters’ efforts to balance their true, sparkly selves with growing up.” —Booklist
