Summer at Meadow Wood

HarperCollins Children's Books     May 19, 2020

ISBN 978-0062795458

"This exceptional summer read is a true middle school novel - gentle enough for preteens and layered enough for teens through eighth grade. Hand to fans of Rebecca Stead, Jenny Han, and Sarah Dessen."

- School Library Journal (starred review)

"A gentle novel perfect for middle graders looking for a summer read."

- Kirkus

"Vic's engaging first-person narrative lets readers feel her emotional distress as well as her intellect, which actively seeks inspiration, hope, and practical coping strategies. An inviting choice, particularly for readers who enjoyed its companion book, Tan's A Kind of Paradise (2019)."
