Reviews

Starred Review, The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, February 2013:
"With its historical backdrop, enjoyable narrative, and endearing heroine, this will appeal both to fans of Philbrick's The Mostly True Adventures of Homer P. Figg and Kelly's The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate." Starred Review, School Library Journal, January 2013:
"Timberlake seamlessly integrates information about two significant events that occurred in Wisconsin in 1871... Georgie's physical and emotional odyssey that occurs between those two events will linger in readers' minds." Starred Review, The Horn Book, January/February 2013:
"...it's Georgie's voice that really brings the story to life, with its original, folksy turns of phrase and self-deprecating humor that make it as entertaining to read as a Christopher Paul Curtis novel." Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, December 1, 2012:
"Georgie's story will capture readers' imaginations with the very first sentences and then hold them hostage until the final page is turned."
