What people are saying about our books…

… The Love Note can be characterized as a humorous, easy, fun and worthwhile read. I found the book interesting in the fact that it confronted real issues. These issues are not only confronted by middle schoolers, but by high schoolers, college students and adults.

… The plot and people are just like teenagers today. Rumors and lies spread so easily. I think more authors like you should write stories like yours. I never really wanted to be an author when I grow up, but I might consider writing stories of my childhood.

… “Sage”, a follow up to the love note (2004) is a cautionary tale about the importance of being true to whom you are, appreciating what you have and giving people the benefit of the doubt. The author has a knack for capturing pre-teen angst.

… “The Love Note” is a great read for young girls. Esparza-Harris takes an everyday, simple situation, so typical, to cause drama in a young girl’s life, and weaves it into a great tale that can help guide them through similar situations. I believe readers in this age group will appreciate how the story is written in a way that not only teaches and is able to help them understand its message, but it’s entertaining as well.
