    • Hurricane Child, Kheryn Callender
      Scholastic Press, 9781338129304, March 27, 2018 (Middle Grade)

      “Being a hurricane child myself, I instantly connected with Caroline and her bad luck. Caroline is used to being the outsider who can see ghosts, but she can’t accept that her mom left her one day and never came back. When a new, charismatic girl who may see ghosts, too, starts at her school, Caroline desperately wants to befriend her. Soon the two are inseparable, and together they search for Caroline’s mother. This wonderful, mystical tale takes the reader on a journey filled with grief and loss but also love, friendship, and hope.”

      -Holly Alexander, The Book Stall (Winnetka, IL)

      “The sights and sounds of St. Thomas are vivid, as is titular hurricane child Caroline Murphy’s longing for her mother and for the love of her only friend, Kalinda. A stunning debut!”

      - Kathleen Carey, Little Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza (Albany, NY)
