Editorial Reviews

Virtuous Girlhood
I don’t usually fall in love with books. I just like them. And it’s very rare when a book makes me laugh, cry, and feel so good all at the same time. But Wreath did just that.

This book is a masterpiece woven into 281 pages of pure genius. . .Wreath is a book that I will be reading again and again. And it’s one of my favorite books. Judy Christie created a character that we can all relate to. While it’s geared towards teens, any reader whether adult or teen will fall in love with Wreath.

    My Daughter was Inspired by this book

    Here's what she has to say about this book.

    This was my favorite book that I've read recently. Wreath is amazingly strong. She's able to move place to place with her mother and survives. But when her mother dies in her arms, Wreath is forced to leave home. She wants to start a new life where her mother grew up. She never met her dad, because he died before she was born. She ends up living in a junkyard that she names Rusted Estates. Wreath finds a job at an old furniture store that is going down the drain. But she's making a life.

    I loved Wreath. She inspired me with the way she was so strong through everything. Sure she could have opened up and let people help her sooner, but she's still amazing.

    This is one of the most inspiring teen fiction books I have ever

    This is one of the most inspiring teen fiction books I have ever read. If Wreath doesn't inspire you, nothing will. Multiple Kudos to Judy Christie for giving us such a beautiful book!
