SEVEN CLUES TO HOME is a Junior Library Guild Selection and Bank Street Best! Praise for IN SIGHT OF STARS: “An intense, sometimes graphic, totally heartbreaking portrait of a character who will keep pages turning.” - Booklist, Starred Review "In Sight of Stars deals with mental health, Vincent Van Gogh, family and recovery; all told in some of the most beautiful prose you will probably ever read. As far as I'm concerned, [this novel] is the equivalent to “Starry Night Over the Rhone,” making Gae Polisner the Vincent Van Gogh of young adult fiction." - Teen Reads "Gae Polisner’s latest release is nothing short of extraordinary ... One of the most compelling and important books on the shelves today, giving teens an outlet to feel heard and understood."- Germ Magazine "In the vein of Ned Vizzini's It's Kind of a Funny Story, Polisner's short novel destigmatizes mental illness, emphasizing that everyone needs a little help sometimes ... this one stands out for its strong writing, likable protagonist, and overwhelmingly positive messages." - School Library Journal “This book is an absolute must-read and the best contemporary novel I’ve read since J.C. Geiger’s Wildman.” – YA Books Central "An achingly fierce exploration of the way the world wounds us and heals us.
