Reviews



“Pelletier effectively depicts a small town with no cell phone reception but plenty of drama... [Roberta] is smart and resilient enough to handle whatever life on earth—and elsewhere—has in store.” - Booklist

“Roberta’s first-person narration is believably authentic, and the mysterious spacecraft sightings add a modicum of suspense that weaves enticingly in and out of common coming-of-age themes... a heartfelt depiction of a summer of emerging self-realization.” - Kirkus

“Pelletier has crafted a timeless coming-of-age story set in small town America. Hand this book to readers who enjoy good, old-fashioned stories.” - School Library Journal

“The details of Roberta’s rural life… are well drawn and authentic. Roberta’s self-confidence and determination are her calling card, and her quest to stand out entertains up through the wild twists of the final chapters.” - Publishers Weekly
