Four more reviews have come in for Nix Minus One, three “official” and one “unofficial.”
Quotes from all the reviews are posted on my website on Nix’s home page, and on my facebook fan page – and the entire reviews are also accessible.
To have received a good review by the Halifax Herald was very satisfying, because that’s my home town newspaper.
I used to live in Winnipeg, so I was really happy to be headlined by the Winnipeg Free Press: “Powerful, compelling teen novel written in free verse.”
Sheryl MacFarlane in her blog SherylBooks highly recommends Nix Minus One, “…a powerful and seamless narrative that doesn’t shy away from difficult issues.”
The last review I want to mention – the “unofficial” one – came from Liam C., the 17-year-old son of a writer friend of mine who lives in Bedford.
He read it in one sitting: “It’s so good. It’s a risky structure, but it works so well.” Then he ends by saying, “It’s probably the best YA novel I’ve ever read.”
What’s not to like?
Seriously, it means a lot to me that a guy in high school read and really liked Nix’s story. Thanks, Liam!
And, yep, it’s still winter.
