Quentin’s Problem in Midwest Book Review!

I am very pleased to announce that Quentin’s Problem has been reviewed by Midwest Book Review and will appear in their August magazine!!!

Here’s a snippet:

“Quentin’s Problem” is a wonderful, invigorating story that encourages youngsters to face up to truths, admit their difficulties, and to accept help through cooperation.

Midwest Book Review¬†is a highly prestigious review source often used by libraries, and out of the >1,500 books sent to them each month, only ~450 are deemed worthy of reviewing. Quentin passed THIS exam! ūüėÄ He’s still working on his “Arr”s.
