"Issues of child abuse and lingering wartime stress are broached without dominating the story. This is an excellent choice for book discussions because it presents so many opportunities for students to wonder what they might do in Harper or Moon's stead." (School Library Journal)
"Vivid storytelling, a rock-solid sense of time and place, memorable, splendidly realized characters: likely to be read in one sitting, under covers by flashlight if necessary." (Kirkus Reviews)
