Reviews

"Inspired by actual events, Holm's talent for writing historical fiction is on full display...Interesting family and small-town dynamics further enrich this fascinating account of a young boy's life in Florida's 'Recovery Key.'" --Booklist starred review

"Filled with humor, heart, and warmth; readers can only hope to hear more about the Curry clan." --Kirkus Review starred review "Period details--like keeping Sears and Roebuck catalogues handy in outhouses, "marble mania," people with leprosy hidden by their families, and the Shirley Temple craze--make for entertaining and illuminating historical fiction."--Publishers Weekly starred review "Multifaceted supporting characters--an intrepid group of friends (all with nicknames such as Pork Chop and Too Bad), a fussy baby brother, a pushy girl nemesis, a mean grandmother, a Key West resident afflicted with leprosy--are all seen through Bean's refreshingly honest eyes and create a novel as entertaining as the motion pictures he loves to see."--The Horn Book Magazine starred review "Holm, who has family ties to Key West, captures this colorful slice of Depression history with her usual vivacious wit and colorful expressions..." --Shelf Awareness, starred review Praise for Jennifer L. Holm: "As a storyteller, Holm is superb."-- School Library Journal "Holm impressively wraps pathos with comedy."-- Booklist "Anyone interested in learning to write crowd-pleasing historical fiction for elementary school readers would be wise to study Holm's work."-- Publishers Weekly, starred review "Sweet, funny and superb."-- Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
