Waiting for the reviews

Sophia's WarThis has become an impor­tant part of the busi­ness in recent years as starred reviews dri­ve book-buy­ing deci­sions. Sophi­a’s War has received two starred reviews:

“Few his­tor­i­cal nov­els are as close­ly shaped by actu­al events as this one dur­ing the last 100 pages. Work­ing with­in the bounds of cred­i­bil­i­ty, Avi man­ages to keep the fic­tion­al nar­ra­tor on the scene for a good deal of the action and uses real moments to bring the imag­ined sto­ry to its dra­mat­ic heights.” —Book­list, starred review.

“New­bery Medal­ist Avi (Crispin: The Cross of Lead) chan­nels the mood, lan­guage, and dan­ger of the Rev­o­lu­tion­ary War in this seam­less blend of his­to­ry and fic­tion, set in British-occu­pied New York City.” — Pub­lish­ers Week­ly, starred review
