Praise For The Year of the Garden (An Anna Wang novel #5)…
"The parallels she draws between The Secret Garden and her experiences with Laura and the garden add depth to this thoughtful chronicle of adjustment. Delicate spot art highlights key elements. A gentle, feel-good story about the transforming power of friendship and gardening." —Kirkus
"Cheng has a keen ear for the friendship dynamics of the younger set... Barton’s softly blended monochromatic illustrations match the delicacy of the text. Fans of Anna and Laura’s adventures will enjoy seeing the beginning of the girls’ friendship." —Bulletin
