Reviewers' and Readers' Comments about Sierra Blue


Between the Covers, by Wendy Schultz, Placerville Mt. Democrat:
“Magic isn’t perfect, but her mistakes in relationships and situations make her an easily identifiable character for most readers. “Sierra Blue” is an empathetic, exciting and empowering read, especially for those readers currently trying to navigate their way through the vagaries of middle and high school.

Midwest Book Review recommends “Sierra Blue,” “especially and unreservedly for all elementary, middle, high school and community libraries.”

Sierra Oaks:
“For all those horse lovers out there, this is a fabulous read that's filled with heart and emotion. 14-year-old Magic is an unusual main character with special skills and unique troubles, but she's all in when Blue needs help recuperating from a tragic accident. Both Magic and Blue get a little help along the way from the supporting characters, but it's Magic and Blue who will steal your heart. Get ready for an e-ticket ride!

Carol Purroy:
Suzanne Morgan Williams writes for teens and tweens like she's been there. She knows how they think and, more important, how they feel. Magic, the main character, is so relatable - for readers from 9 to 109.

The Bibliophile, by Dan Barnett, Chico Enterprise-Record: 
“Williams’ novel is a wonderfully immersive story of self-discovery, friendship — and new directions.”

Elizabeth Raum:
What a terrific read for any young reader. However, Sierra Blue will find a special place in the hearts of those who love animals. . . . This is a novel about negotiating the difficulties of adolescence and discovering that being different can enrich, rather than diminish, a person's life.

Patricia Newman:
Suzanne Morgan Williams has written a galloping story full of magical realism and teen drama to keep readers turning pages. 

Jacci Turner:
I loved this book from page one. . . it kept me up reading one night.

Linda Kay Hardie:
In this wonderful, nail-biting story, I kept thinking, "oh, a happy ending, yay!" then "oh, no, a sad ending, boo," then "wait, it's going to be happy!" to "no, not sad" until I was worn out (in a VERY good way).
