Praise for Vikki VanSickle's Words That Start with B
Shortlisted, CBA Libris Awards' Children's Book of the Year (2011)
Selection, CCBC Best Books for Kids and Teens (2011)
Recommended, IODE Violet Downey Book Award (2011)
"A well-crafted and enjoyable first effort from a writer who is
obviously tuned into the minds and emotions of young teens."
—Quill & Quire
"Clarissa and Benji offer a fresh, honest look at life as an outsider,
when you don't quite belong and don't quite know who you are. They're
funny and relatable and exactly the kind of characters kids should be
reading in today's It Gets Better age."
"A fresh and honest look at a girl's school year in that wonderful,
horrible, confusing time known as Grade Seven."
—Canadian Bookseller Magazine
"Words That Start with B is the story of how a feisty girl battles a
year of surprises, if not with grace, then with a lot of humour."
—Open Book Toronto
