Praise For How to Catch a Frog: And Other Stories of Family, Love, Dysfunction, Survival, and DIY

“Did we mention that the book is full of DIYs, awesome stories, and Heather’s own illustrations? You want it.”


“A powerful collection of stories.”


“It's a little bit DIY and a whole lot of autobiographical goodness.”


“In the end, it’s clear that Ross learned to be self-reliant and that creating useful, handmade objects became a way of life for her.”


“A very honest coming-of-age tale . . . the book reminded me of the powerful memoir Wild by Cheryl Strayed, and if you loved that book, this one will rock your world as well.”
