Here’s a roundup of some more news and reviews for Alone in the Woods!
The book received great reviews from BCCB and the Midwest Book Review:
Behrens plays fair with both the friendship drama and the survival story, and each protagonist’s voice is astute and true to her own perspective. . . . In the northwoods or the school hallway, most readers will feel they’ve been there.”
—Elizabeth Bush, BCCB, Recommended
A deftly crafted, suspense laden, inherently entertaining, and thoroughly ‘kid friendly’ novel by an author with a remarkable talent for the kind of narrative driven storytelling skills that will keep a young reader’s riveted attention from beginning to cliffhanger ending. . . . [A]n extraordinary and unreservedly recommended addition to elementary school, middle school, and community library . . . collections.”
—Midwest Book Review
And Alone in the Woods was featured as one of “40 New Books for Holiday Gifts in 2020” recommended by Jim Higgins of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
I’m also thrilled to share that Alone in the Woods is a Junior Library Guild Selection, and in the new year, Alone in the Woods will be a Literati Club Phoenix pick! It’s great news that the book will be finding an audience thanks to both of these fantastic curation services.
