Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Once again Rodowsky ( Julie's Daughter ) is right on target in her expression of the perspective and concerns of a young adolescent in crisis. Twelve-year-old Hannah's childhood comes to a quick halt when she realizes that her mother's drinking is getting out of control. Since no one else in the family is willing to admit there is a problem, Hannah carries the terrible secret alone, doing her best to rid the house of empty vodka bottles and hide her mother's erratic behavior from friends. When her mother's drunk driving leads to a serious automobile accident, Hannah's father is finally forced to admit his wife is an alcoholic, but he cannot produce a solution or promise a brighter future. This heartrending novel offers a frank, sensitive depictions of alcoholism and its effects. Far from seeming a monster, Hannah's mother emerges as a caring woman suffering many disappointments. Her painful struggle to regain sobriety proves to be as moving as her daughter's attempts to create order out of chaos. Through the author's keenly perceptive, down-to-earth narrative, readers will sense the strong bond of love that connects the members of Hannah's family and ultimately helps deep wounds to heal. Ages 12-up. (May)
The ALAN Review - Hollis Lowery-Moore
Hannah's comfortable world is crumbling, and it is all because her mother drinks too much. The worst part is that nobody else seems to notice. Young adolescents will empathize with Hannah's embarrassment when her photographer mother almost falls into the wedding cake while taking pictures at a reception and agonize with Hannah as she collects the empty vodka bottles hidden throughout the beach house during summer vacation. Rodowsky uses the predictable problem-novel format, including the hopeful ending that makes a book about alcoholism acceptable to middle graders. However, the characters are believable and the book can be a valuable resource in health and life skills classes for units on alcohol abuse.
School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-A problem novel told by a child who sees much more than the adults around her would like to believe. The year between Hannah's 12th and 13th birthdays begins in usual fashion-with a family party and a newspaper column devoted to her by her journalist grandfather. Even so, the girl can see that her predictable, comfortable life is about to crumble. Hannah's mother is an alcoholic, and her family is a study in avoidance. The blinders on the adults may be hard to swallow for some, but Hannah's emotions are painfully real as they run the gamut from tormented confusion as she becomes more and more certain that something is terribly wrong, to desperate fear as she gets in the car with her drunk mother. This is a story about secrets and the inevitable exposure of a problem, and not a story about healing, so it's not surprising that the resolution comes so quickly. It's also a story about a girl with very normal adolescent concerns that surface amidst the hard truths she faces over this year, anchoring the novel for young teens who are sure to be attracted by Hannah's direct gaze on the cover.-Susan Oliver, Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Library System
