Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

"The loss of innocence can be as dramatic as the loss of a parent of the discovery that what's perceived to be truth can acutally be a big fat lie as shown in Kagen's compassionate debut, a coming-of-age thriller set in Milwaukee during the summer of 1959." -- Publisher's Weekly

"Kagen's stellar third novel, Tomorrow River, chronicles the dramatic changes in the lives of 11-year-old Shenny Carmody and her twin sister, Woody, nearly a year after their mother's disappearance. Kagen not only delivers a spellbinding story but also takes a deep look into the mores, values, and shams of a small Southern community in an era of change. -- Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

Review

Praise for The Undertaking of Tess the e-novella prequel to The Resurrection of Tess Blessing:

"A tender yet big-hearted coming-of-age story filled with heartbreak, secrets, and humorous observations of the convoluted adult world through which two young sisters must navigate." ----Beth Hoffman, New York Times bestselling author of Looking for Me and Saving CeeCee Honeycutt

"
Heart-rending, yet humorous and filled with hope, The Undertaking of Tess is a rare treat from an author who truly knows how to create unforgettable characters. Readers who loved Kagen's Whistling in the Dark will adore Tess and Birdie in this delightful novella". ----Sandra Kring, author of the national bestseller, The Book of Bright Ideas

"A bittersweet coming-of-age-in-the-fifties story that'll have you crying one minute and laughing out loud the next. Kagen's ability to capture children's deepest emotions never fails to impress."
--Bonnie Shimko, award-winning author of The Private Thoughts of Amelia E. Rye
