TRUE SHOES "recommended" by US Review of Books
True Shoes has received a sought-after "Recommended" nod from the online US Review of Books, whose review of the book was posted this week.
Here's a clip from the review:
"The story deals honestly with such topics as first love, difficult home lives and the fear of being different. Wilhelm creates intelligent characters who, like real kids, are never one dimensional. Russ carries a torch for Cat, but often feels taken for granted. Cat, who is from the Philippines is caught between two worlds, her home country and the new country. Cam deals with the real-life issues of losing his father in Afghanistan. Life is not simple for these middle schoolers, but then neither is life in the real world. Wilhelm manages to give a voice to a new age of kids that is both heartbreaking and uplifting."
