Reviews

Starred Review, School Library Journal, March 2011: "Thompson has crafted an exquisite, thought-provoking story of grief and healing that will resonate with teen readers and give them much to discuss." Review, Publishers Weekly, January 3, 2011: "Eloquently captures a teenager's anger, guilt, and sorrow after a classmate takes her own life. . . . Understated yet potent verse." Review, Kirkus Reviews, January 1, 2011: "A fast-paced page-turner that explores the rippling effects of suicide." Review, Booklist, January 1, 2011: "Readers will want to talk about the big issues, especially the guilt of doing nothing." Review, VOYA, "Compelling. . . . Teens who enjoy learning about other cultures will relish Thompson's ability to evoke the sights, smells, and tastes of Japan, while poetry fans will enjoy the novel's unique format." Review, The Winston-Salem Journal, March 20, 2011: "This lyrical look at bullying and the afterschocks of suicide may be gut-wrenching, but Orchards is crafted with a sensitive beauty." From the Hardcover edition.
