Awards and Honors
" . . . after a few fierce temptations Sarah comes to the conclusion that sometimes it takes a lot more courage not to fight than to fight. This easy-to-read chapter book gallops right along, alternately riotous and serious."
"Reminiscent of Louis Sachar . . . Carbone has a spirited voice and a
realistic heroine in big-mouthed, impulsive Sarah."
-The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"This middle-grade novel belongs at the head of its class."
