Professional Reviews for The TIME of The FIREFLIES:
“Haunting, well-constructed tale . . . A plot filled with suspense, adventure, and mystery. Perfect choice for lovers of ghost stories, historical fiction, or just a good yarn.”
—School Library Journal
“Little’s strengths lie in building a strong sense of the history of a place, its inhabitants, and how one can greatly affect the other. A satisfyingly creepy mystery, wrapped up in the bonds of family.” —Publisher’s Weekly
“Suspense builds quickly and doesn’t falter . . . Larissa’s first-person narration is fresh and engaging, and the richly evoked south Louisiana setting serves to ground this ethereal tale in a real time and place while contributing to the mysterious mood it requires. —Kirkus Reviews
