Reviews

"Yhard skillfully tackles sensitive subjects and delivers an intriguing and uplifting story with important messages about self-identity and acceptance...A wonderful story with something to offer audiences of all ages."-- (05/01/2011) "The folks in this book are likable but not perfect...and I was transported directly into their curious island community, a place I visited once and which struck me then, as it did now, as a special and mysterious place....[The novel] builds gradually to a suspenseful ending that is somehow both imperfect yet just right...Will appeal equally to the young and not-so-young adult reader, in which the kids are treated as multi-dimensional, real people."-- (06/17/2011) "[There's] a beauty and magic about the island which rang true when I read this book. This is a powerful story about a teenager who has lost loved ones and found a way to heal with the help of others."-- (10/18/2011) "A great read, wholly engaging and so relatable for a young person who is dealing with loss in their lives...Yhard's writing manages to be quite entertaining, warm and moving while dealing with some pretty complex human drama."-- (11/17/2011) "An emotional and powerful story, with a stunning setting, and which addresses some complex issues, this is an excellent read for early teens."--Parents in Touch (12/11/2011) "There is a ton to love about this book--it's very beautifully written, with a sensitivity that never gets too sentimental and overwrought...Yhard does some wonderful descriptive work with the setting--it sounds so beautiful and wild."-- (02/08/2012) "[A] wonderfully thrilling tale of self-discovery and friendship...This book will leave you feeling warm inside and waiting for more, and is a necessity for everyone's bookshelf."-- (04/15/2012) "Alex is a complex and imperfect character--just like most teenagers you know. Viewing the adult world through her eyes was a poignant reminder of the angst, confusion and naivety of those young years...With a great balance of personal, social and ecological lessons, Lost on Brier Island is a fantastic and inspiring read for the young or young-at-heart reader on your list."-- (12/23/2011) "Loved everything about this book. The writing, the premise, the setting, the characters. It was a great mix of mystery, sadness, lightness and character development...Lost on Brier Island is the perfect summertime read regardless of your age."-- (09/01/2011) "Will evoke nostalgia for a place that is familiar to some of the novel's readers or a desire to visit it for the first time. In particular, the animals and flora that inhabit the landscape are sure to be a hit with a younger preteen and teen audience, just as they are with the main character...From the richly-drawn characters and psychologically realistic behaviors to the well-defined setting and plot, Lost On Brier Island will reward readers looking for a contemporary novel that deals with emotionally difficult issues in a thoughtful and realistic way."-- (06/21/2011)
