Marjolijn Hof's first novel, Against the Odds was published to high critical acclaim, winning three major Dutch and Flemish children's book prizes - the Golden Owl Juvenile Literature Prize, the Golden Owl Young Readers' Prize and the Golden Slate Pencil.


- A USBBY Outstanding International Book, 2009"Hof reaches adeptly into Kiki's mind and scattered emotions, allowing her to tell her own story in simple, childlike language ... Her plight will resonate with young readers..." "-- Kirkus""The little girl's desperate reasoning is spot on in terms of developmental level and worldview. Her mother's conflicts-how much information to share, how to maintain a sense of normalcy-are also heartrendingly realistic." "-- Horn Book Magazine"" ... a sensitive and honest portrayal of a family during a time of great stress.""-- School Library Journal"
