"A fabulous companion to the novel for teachers and students alike . . ."

Southern Maine Library District, May 10, 2011

"This series provides an accessible introduction to literary criticism for novels currently studied in many high schools . . . a definite purchase for those schools that have adopted these works as part of the curriculum."

Library Media Connection, May/June 2010

"The strong autobiographical connection of the author and her writings make this a biography as well as literary criticism."

TriState Young Adult Book Review Committee, May 2010

"These guides to selected multicultural works of fiction are geared to the high school student engaged in the study of great literature classics in the classroom. Their work is considered in the context of each author's biographical background, and links are established between life events and the authors' writing. Literary devices and techniques are explained in relationship to the work being discussed."

MultiCultural Review, Fall 2010

"Both of these guides to literature . . . will be extremely helpful to middle or high school teachers who wish to introduce their students to contemporary multicultural fiction . . ."

Catholic Library World, March 2011

"The guide helps teachers and readers understand the universal theme of finding one’s self without rejecting one’s culture through exploring the author’s background and her reaction to it. A discussion about the importance of this work as well as some of her others is included to give a more complex view of the author. It might be helpful to readers who may come from an entirely different background but realize the commonality of the struggle to grow up."

Children's Literature

"Students of literature will appreciate these dense but useful discussions of notable titles popular with young adult audiences."
