Editorial Reviews

"There is tragedy in Mama''s Going to Buy You a Mockingbird, but it is far outweighed by the sense of hope. Not sappy or sentimental hope—honest hope that rings true to anyone who has experienced loss." - Kelley Armstrong

"If you haven''t discovered Jean Little, you are missing out." - Calgary Herald
