Review: <i>Nim at Sea</i> by Wendy Orr

Today, in January Magazine’s children’s book section, contributing editor Sue Bursztynski reviews Nim at Sea by Wendy Orr. Says Bursztynski:

The only book by Wendy Orr I had read before was the rather grim Peeling The Onion, in which a teenager who had been an athlete is now confined to a wheelchair and has to get her life in order. Of course, teenagers enjoy tragic tales — at least, the ones I know do — and it was a good story for its audience. Nonetheless, it was a pleasant surprise to come to Nim at Sea — a book intended for younger readers — and find it gentle and funny and warm.

The full review is here.

  1. FYI – on Peeling the Onion – the protagonist is not actually confined to a wheelchair (at least, not more than very briefly, during the acute stage of recovery)
