Review quote

Praise for Big Game "[R]eaders will appreciate the nonstop action as Oskari relies on all of his training to help the president evade the villains and their treasonous plans." -- Booklist (online) "[T]he pace and action will grab fans of survival stories." -- Voice of Youth Advocates Praise for My Brother's Secret "[P]atriotism, courage, and compassion are presented through believable characters, gripping suspense, and an unflinching look at the lengths some will go to in order to retain control. A heartfelt look at coming of age in a time of war." -- Kirkus Reviews "An exciting novel with compelling characters for those interested in historical fiction and Nazi Germany." -- School Library Journal "It is breathtaking to see Smith open with a character who so clearly and yet innocently goes against the values of most readers, and the author handles Karl's growing realization of the truth beautifully. [T]his is clever, gripping storytelling -- and the plot up to the climax is incredibly compelling[.]" -- Voice of Youth Advocatesshow more
