Editorial Reviews


"The disappearance of her friend will send a Mennonite girl on a journey of discovery. The story is competently told, in plain, straightforward prose--befitting the subject matter and narrator Lucy's character... This novel will...find readers." --Kirkus Reviews

"Snowbirds is a thoughtful young-adult novel about friendship, rebellion, and the consequences of all the little choices we make. An ideal read for those looking for a nuanced look at the difficulties of growing up and breaking free from a world that has been so instrumental in shaping one's identity." --Foreword Reviews

"If the only things you know about the Amish you learned from TLC, you might want to check out this amazing new novel pronto ... it’s perfect for the gal who loves to explore new cultures." (Brit + Co)

"The book sheds light on an otherwise secretive and mysterious society and offers an unprejudiced look at this way of life ... .Crissa-Jean Chappell’s writing is the real star of this novel. Her command of words is astounding ... the book has a strong poetic feel to it. The closing sentences of each chapter ... add the magical touch ... .The story is very beautiful to read." (YA Books Central)

“A beautifully written novel … .Through SNOWBIRDS, Chappell gives her readers the opportunity to lessen the difference and stigma surrounding Amish, and other religious communities. She allows her readers to find commonalities between themselves and others. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking to understand that everyone is human, regardless of their race, faith, and traditions.”  (Teenreads)

“Subtle interactions within the close-knit communities build suspense and keep readers on their toes. Many readers will relate to Lucy's attempts to find her own identity. A good choice for fans of Sara Zarr, this absorbing mystery will fit in well in higher-level middle school and reluctant high school reader collections." (School Library Journal)
