Media reviews

Publisher's Weekly, March 8, 2011:
"Day delivers a well-paced, realistic 'summer of change' story."

Booklist
, March 15, 2011:

"Day captures childhood’s pain and hope deftly in this satisfying tale."The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, April 2011:
"There’s a solid, old-school feel to the story...and a gentleness to the timeless world of summer vacations, where kids pelt around together under minimal adult supervision...A classic summer-growth story."School Library Journal, June 2011:
"Day has written a great book that deals with a variety of believable interpersonal relationships and transitions...[Lucy's] grief is thoughtfully interwoven throughout the story."
