From Eleanor Brown, bestselling author of The Weird Sisters and The Light of Paris 

"I just got back from a few days at the Broadmoor, where I did nothing but read, including FINALLY getting to read One Sister’s Song! I enjoyed it so much. Good characters, quick-moving plot – tore right through it by the pool!"
