“An endlessly endearing story of three girls’ pursuit of friendship and the beauty and challenge of what it means to be 10.” - Kirkus, STARRED review
"First-time author Swartz creates a clear, moving portrayal of obsessive-compulsive disorder through the authentic voice of middle schooler Molly Nathans." - Publishers Weekly
Jean Reidy picture books ALWAYS make for good news, and we are so happy that two of her texts now have an illustrator and a publication schedule! WHEN THE SNOW IS DEEPER THAN YOUR BOOTS ARE TALL and GROUP HUG were sold to Laura Godwin at Holt in the spring, and now comes word that they will be published by Laura's new Godwin Books imprint in fall 2018 and winter 2019, with fantastic illustrations by Joey Chou, who is represented by Kirsten Hall of Catbird Productions. We're so happy to have this news out in the world, and to see this author-illustrator partnership start with the bang of two books! Congratulations, Jean!
