Praise for "The Icarus Project"
"Who wouldn t want to find something earth-shatteringly unique while on an Arctic expedition?.. Quimby's plot is exuberantly fast-paced and earnest."
"Maya's earnest first-person point of view and sense of fair play make her easy to root for, and the inclusion of a boy character as a foil to Maya, along with lively writing and plenty of action, will help this middle-grade novel pull in reluctant readers."
"Maya is an earnest and likable character and the plot is fast-paced enough to hold readers attention. Maya's curiosity, bravery, and desire to do the right thing will resonate with many readers."
