Gary D Schmidt recommends

Breadcrumbs (2011)

"This is a lyrical book, a lovely book, and a smart book; it dares us to see stories as spreading more widely, and running more deeply, than we had imagined."

Screaming at the Ump (2014)
Audrey Vernick
"You'll read this in the time it takes to play a double-header!"

This Is Not a Werewolf Story (2016)
Sandra Evans
"A journey that every reader needs to go on. How splendid to find a book that gives such companions to walk with along the way."

Sidetracked (2017)
