Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Kat Greene mixes Harriet the Spy with some Windex and a dash of humor for a compelling story about the lengths we'll go to for the people we love. A sparkling debut! --Erin Donne, author of The Total Tragedy of a Girl Named Hamlet I absolutely loved Kat's warm, funny, perfectly-pitched middle-grade voice. This book fits perfectly in the heartwarming tradition of Manhattan-based stories from E.L. Konigsburg, Rebecca Stead, Louise Fitzhugh, and Judy Blume. Highly recommended! -Sally J. Pla, author of The Someday Birds With the same timeless feel as Judy Blume's middle-grade books, Kat Greene relays its themes in a similarly clever and entertaining way. I loved the way author Melissa Roske empowers Kat and, as a result, her tween readers. --Katy Upperman, author of Kissing Max Holden Melissa Roske gives us an easy-to-love protagonist in Kat Greene. She's smart, authentic, and very relatable. Kat navigates her struggles in realistic ways and never loses heart. Teachers will want this one on their shelves. -Patricia Bailey, author of The Tragically True Adventures of Kit Donovan.
