From Eleanor Brown, Author of New York Times bestseller The Weird Sisters (!)

"I just got back from a few days at the Broadmoor, where I did absolutely nothing but read, including FINALLY getting to read One Sister’s Song!

"I enjoyed it so much. Good characters, quick-moving plot – tore right through it by the pool!"
