The Heart and Mind of Frances Pauley

CRITICS HAVE SAID

  • “Nothing short of magical.” — The New York Times
  • “A moving depiction of unique characters, grief, and the benevolent power of forgiveness. ” — Kirkus, starred review
  • “If a novel can show the growth of a soul, this one does it. Frances begins this story almost literally in a cave; she ends it with the discovery of how unexpectedly wide the world can be. To cheer for her growth—painful as it is—is to cheer for our own possibilities.” — Gary D. Schmidt, three-time Newbery Honor–winning author
  • “Filled with indelible characters, this lyrical novel about acceptance and what it means to be truly kind will resonate with readers on a deeply emotional level.” — Stephanie Hemphill, Michael L. Printz Honor Award winner
