Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Offering a month-by-month account of Winnie’s eleventh year, this lighthearted and well-observed novel is sure to strike a familiar chord with girls on the brink of adolescence…Myracle shows particular skill at delineating the ways fifth- and sixth-grade girls form and reform their friendships, and the unspoken feelings between Amanda and Winnie fuel especially poignant moments. Myracle reworks familiar themes in a narrative that remains fresh and lively, inviting the audience to commiserate and laugh along with Winnie as she advances toward her twelfth year.” Publishers Weekly
“Myracle explores the hurts, small and not so small, of losing a lifetime friend in the same quiet way that Lynne Rae Perkins’ All Alone in the Universe does for teens. Fortunately, the protagonists’ discovery that love and trust can come from opening oneself to someone new compensates for such losses.” School Library Journal
“There is a good deal of humor in each carefully recorded incident…The tone is nuanced rather than madcap, quietly accurate and insightful rather than exaggerated and zany…Myracle definitely does justice to the small, painful, poignant moments of adolescence.” Children’s Literature
“Myracle displays a good ear for the words, emotions, and angst of a tween…Girls will especially like this enjoyable novel that rings with preteen truth.” Kirkus Reviews
“Lauren Myracle’s Eleven is an honest-to-goodness delight. I love Winnie. She grows, and we delight in that growth, which is what reading good books is all about. Great stuff from a fresh new voice.” Graham Salisbury, author of Lord of the Deep
