Editorial Reviews

Review

**STARRED REVEW**
"A narrative that challenges the stereotypical stories of domestic violence, Riverland is painful and heartwarming all at once . . . A must-read."
, Booklist

"The important topic of physical and emotional abuse in families is sensitively portrayed."
, Kirkus Reviews

**STARRED REVIEW**
"Wilde approaches the difficult subjects of domestic violence and emotional abuse with the care and respectful treatment that they deserve, using the fantastic to symbolize and illuminate the complex emotions her characters experience. About courage and truth overcoming denial and fear, Riverland is an important book."
, Shelf Awareness

"Wilde (Updraft) skillfully blurs the lines of fantasy and reality in a haunting middle grade story of sisters connected through trauma and a shared mythology . . . Beneath the surface of Wilde’s fantastical metaphors lies the far more chilling and profound portrayal of domestic abuse and the lengths to which people can go to deny the most painful of truths."
, Publishers Weekly

"Eleanor is a very believable heroine, with faults typical of any middle schooler. In the end she has to solve the problem herself and does so."
, School Library Connection

"Wilde concocts a heartbreakingly anxious story as Eleanor walks on eggshells to protect herself and her sister from their abusive parents . . . The lens of house magic for physical and emotional abuse acts as a buffer, allows the story to avoid a preachy tone while still accurately depicting the hurdles a child in a stifling household must face."
, The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
