Jen Robinson's book review

There are lots of people out there blogging about books. And then there are people like Jen Robinson who REALLY blogs about books. And not just random reviews or recaps of other blogs but thoughtful posts that explore all aspects of this crazy world of kid lit. But I think it's the reviews that I like the most. They are always insightful and fair. So I was thrilled to open her blog last week and see a review of A MILLION MILES FROM BOSTON. She liked - thank goodness! - Lucy, my main character, and the setting (wonderful coastal Maine). But mostly what I appreciated was that she got what I was trying to do: that in stead of being a plot device, mom's death and Lucy's understanding of it would form the main theme in the book. Thanks, Jen!
