The Silent Witness: A True Story of the Civil War

'Lula's experiences are the basis for this thoughtful tale. The delicate, detailed illustrations convey the experience of living in a civil war with haunting power."

-The New York Times Book Review

'Friedman expertly weaves the major facts of the Civil War into her narrative, always returning to Lula's experiences as a touchstone.By focusing on Lula and her doll-the 'silent witness' of the title-the grand sweep of history is placed very firmly and humanely within the grasp of young readers."

-Kirkus Reviews

'Friedman's economical text clearly shows how the Civil War touched the life of a young child."

-School Library Journal

How I Survived My Summer Vacation: And Lived to Write the Story

'Friedman's comic timing along with her insights are what readers will remember."

-Publishers Weekly

'Jackie's tantalizing first lines introduce each chapter, while his witty, fast-paced narrative relates the silly and serious episodes.The exaggerated characters and broad humor have a cinematic quality. Like an old 1950s comedy, this first novel is entertaining summer reading."

-Booklist

'Cleverly drawn characters use convincing dialogue.and the plot is loaded with humor.The book is an amusing light read that makes some good points about honesty, understanding others, and friendship."

-Voice of Youth Advocates
