CRITICS HAVE SAID

  • "Sit back in a comfortable chair, bring on the Kleenex and cry your heart out… Prescient writing, fully developed characters and completely, tragically believable situations elevate this sad, gripping tale to a must-read level." – Kirkus Reviews
  • "SEE YOU AT HARRY’S offers, on the one hand, a deft and delicate handling of commonplace traumas how to negotiate bullying on the school bus, what it means for everyone in a family when a teenager comes to terms with his sexuality and, on the other, the enormous and mercifully rare drama of a childs accidental death. And while the distinction between these narrative elements their disparate weights may seem to an adult huge, Knowles is aware that a childs perspective is somewhat different." – The New York Times
  • "This novel is reminiscent of classics like LITTLE WOMEN in its exploration of the often difficult, always powerful bond among siblings. Despite its classic, timeless themes, however, it also touches on such contemporary issues as the dangers of bullying and sexual orientation… Young readers will eagerly turn the pages of this perfectly paced novel and will care deeply about what happens to Fern and her siblings. The story is so authentic and captivating that readers will come to love Ferns family and feel a part of it. When tragedy strikes, readers will feel the blow almost as intensely as the family does. Readers will savor every bite of this bittersweet novel." – VOYA
