From Romantic Times:
This is a sweet, funny and emotional tale. This modern take on Daddy-Long-Legs, by Jean Webster, has wonderful, fully developed characters... This incredible story will appeal to adult as well as young readers. 4.5 stars
Thank You, Mrs. M. is a wonderful read...This is a poignant and enjoyable read. --Night Owl Reviews
A thoughtful and really interesting re-imagining of how the classic story Daddy Long Legs might play out in today's world. There are light homages to the original, which add a bit of extra glow to the romance if you're a fan, but what really made the story for me were the differences.

This book was a wonderful surprise - I didn't expect so much emotion. The story is basically that of a young man recounting how his life was changed by an anonymous donor who helps him, and it's his "thank you" to a benefactor he may never meet. Very cool.
