    “In Dear Haiti, Love Alaine, this debut author duo has created an effervescent heroine who uses her burgeoning investigative skills to uncover a dark family history. Along the way, she has to navigate the often-snarky world of social media, the crushing poverty in Haiti, and the sad realization that her nuclear family is changing rapidly, no matter the drastic steps she takes.”

    -Pam Moser, Pacific Island Books, Thornton, CO

    “An entrancing coming-of-age story filled with magic and sparkling prose. I immediately loved fiery Alaine, and her journey into her Haitian heritage and her mother’s past is so compelling.”

    -Sami Thomason, Square Books, Oxford, MS


    “This modern epistolary YA novel paints a rich picture of a young woman finding her place while learning about her mysterious family history and ancestral home. The main character is wonderfully sarcastic, snarky, fun, and unique.”

    -Raissa Larson, King’s Books, Tacoma, WA
