--"O Magazine "Summer Reading Pick
--NPR "Books With Personality" (Nancy Pearl's 2011 Selection)
"Affecting . . . Riveting . . . A thrilling tale that unravels mysteries of the human heart, "The Summer of the Bear" is spine-tingling."--"People" (4.5 stars)
"There's magic at the margins of "The Summer of the Bear." . . . The novel has a bit of the style of Lemony Snicket and a smidgeon of" The Secret of Roan Inish." Pollen's writing is clean and clear enough that you can really smell the peat smoke and feel the wind."--"Los Angeles Times "
"What's real and what's imagined is at the heart of this gem of a novel, which is one part fairy tale, one part international thriller, and all-parts engrossing family drama. . . . Pollen's lyrical and often witty prose makes this a stirring tale of loss and self-discovery."--"More"
"Full of vivid detail . . . Pollen is an acute observer of people and places . . . a skilled dissector of the subtleties of sibling warfare."--"The Washington Post"
"Pollen creates magic in "The Summer of the Bear.""--"Vanity Fair"

"Pollen's vivid descriptions of nature have the power to transport even the most harried city-bound reader to a cool, secluded, distant island."--"O Magazine "(Summer Reading List)
"[A] show-stealing, fantastic portrayal of under-parented children."--"Publishers Weekly"
