Praise for Genie Wishes
"Girls should identify and mothers should approve of this gentle tale of growing up."
Kirkus Reviews

"Upbeat slice-of-life novel."
Publishers Weekly

"Here’s to reading about Genie’s sixth-grade year soon."
Booklist

"The author has a keen eye for the tween girl experience: Genie’s plans for the future involve living right by her best friend and working together as dolphin trainers, while the highlight of her summer is the fact that her other friend just joined the pool. This will no doubt resonate with tween girls, and it has the charm and the discussion fodder to make an excellent mother-daughter book club selection."
