I was honoured by the recent review in Booklist, the review publication for American librarians.
Now, Library Bound (the book resource for Canadian libraries) has been heard from. First they featured Almost Criminal as a book of “Special Interest” in their May newsletter, then they named it one of “Ron’s Picks”—a staff favourite of print manager Ron Stadnick. His complete review is here, but here’s a taste:
“With convincing characters and a lack of cartoonish violence, this is a good read for those with an interest in how marijuana cultivation can underpin vast swathes of a community in myriad ways.
The teenaged protagonist has the mostly usual problems endemic to the age: family, school, money, unrequited love etc, making this a good book for young adult and reluctant readers as well.”
