Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for CHESTER AND GUS: “In this delightful novel, Cammie McGovern has somehow managed to channel, with absolute perfection, the endearing voice of an aspiring service dog named Chester. Joyful, inspiring, and completely winning, Chester and Gus is unforgettable.” (Katherine Applegate, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Newbery Medal winner The One and Only Ivan)

“Beautifully imagined and deeply affecting, Cammie McGovern’s sensitive portrait of one resilient family and their very special dog demonstrates that the best lives are lived when differences are cherished.” (Leslie Connor, award-winning author of Waiting for Normal and All Rise for the Honorable Perry T. Cook)

“The quintessential book about a boy and his dog—perfectly beautiful.” (Huffington Post)

“[Readers] will be charmed by Chester’s warmth and loyalty.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Gus’ gradual, subtle interactions with his classmates ring true and sympathetic.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Praise for JUST MY LUCK: “I loved this portrait of a young boy struggling to find his role in a family determined not to be defined by their differences. Benny’s brave story, told with wry humor, is inspirational.” (Ann M. Martin, New York Times bestselling author of Rain Reign)

“In narrator Benny, readers find a resilient and very observant 9-year-old who accepts those around him with their strengths and shortcomings alike. His story is insightful and inspirational.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“McGovern’s thoughtful depiction of a family facing difficult situations without fracturing, coupled with a gentle message about not being too hard on oneself, will surely speak to middle schoolers with their own slate of worries.” (Publishers Weekly)

“A heart-filled story of a likable boy who doesn’t realize that his natural gifts are recognizable and valued by a supportive family. There are many moments that will ring true to middle grade readers: feeling anxious about friendships, wanting to be noticed, and trying to do the right thing.” (School Library Journal)

“McGovern’s observations about ordinary-seeming life and about the people around us, about small acts of kindness and healing and forgiveness, are perceptive and thought-provoking.” (The Horn Book)
