Praise For My Mixed-Up Berry Blue Summer

"My Mixed-Up Berry Blue Summer is like its protagonist, full to bursting with sweetness and summer light. . .When things begin to look bleak and scary, you just know June has the grit and sunshine to pull through." —Tim Wynne-Jones, award-winning author

"Mix a pitch-perfect narrator with serious themes (but don’t set it aside to cool) and you have My Mixed-Up Berry Blue Summer. Tart in places and sweet in others, Ms. Gennari’s debut novel is satisfying in every way."—Ron Koertge, author of Shakespeare Makes the Playoffs
