Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

An Amazon Best Book of November 2016: The eyes of eight-year-old Dixie Dupree are bright and wide as she candidly reveals her bumpy childhood in Alabama with her high-strung mother and somewhat useless father. When her parents' incipient divorce triggers a tragic accident, the family is overwhelmed, and Dixie's faraway uncle, Ray, comes to the rescue. Or so it seems. Debut author Everhart writes about the tension between mother and daughter with bravery and wit, unearthing the little things that can seesaw a relationship between trust and resentment. And I'm sure I won't be the only one who sees glimpses of Harper Lee's young Scout in Dixie's stubbornness and naiveté. Like To Kill a Mockingbird, The Education of Dixie Dupree delves into subjects too powerful to allow the book to be labeled as charming. But there is a wistful magic in seeing the world again through a child's viewpoint, even if that world is not as shiny and innocent as one would hope. --Adrian Liang, The Amazon Book Review

Review

ADVANCE PRAISE FOR THE EDUCATION OF DIXIE DUPREE

“Please open your heart to Dixie Dupree. With unflinching honesty and a voice that rings with authenticity, she survives the unthinkable. Her story celebrates the resiliency of the human spirit and the triumph of the imagination. An important novel, beautifully written, this is a story to cherish.”--Susan Wiggs, # 1 New York Times bestselling author

“A searingly honest coming of age story with a heroine unlike any other I've met in a long time. I read this book through from start to finish in one sitting, simply unable and unwilling to put it down. Here's to another beautiful novel from Donna Everhart."--Holly Chamberlin, author of Seashell Season

“Secrets, lies, peach cobbler, grits, a hot Alabama sun, and a girl named Dixie Dupree who shows courage in the face of betrayal, strength when all falls down around her, and shining hope in the darkness.   This is a story you’ll read well into the night.”--Cathy Lamb, author of The Language of Sisters

“A poignant coming of age novel as gritty as red Alabama dirt. Dixie Dupree will stay with you long after you’ve turned the last page.”--Colleen Faulkner, author of Julia’s Daughters

“In a powerful coming-of-age story that pitches southern charm against dark family secrets, the voice of 11-year-old Dixie Dupree captivates from the first page to the last.”--Barbara Claypole White, bestselling author of The Perfect Son

“Young Dixie Dupree is an indomitable spirit in this coming-of-age novel that is a heartbreaking and honest witness to the resilience of human nature and the fighting spirit and courage residing in all of us, and for those who have lived in the underbelly of betrayal and child abuse. A triumphant debut novel which can transform a brokenness, bring forth a wholeness, The Education Of Dixie Dupree would make a wonderful resource and academic book as well.” – The Huffington Post (Kim Michele Richardson, author of GodPretty in the Tobacco Field)
