Inhaltsangabe: Book by Nielsen Susin

Críticas: Praise for Dear George Clooney, Please Marry My Mom

"Nielsen (Word Nerd) has created a narrator as sassy and candid as this memorable novel's title.... Nielsen skillfully balances her story's keen humor...with poignancy. Especially affecting are Violet's struggles to accept her father's new family...."
--Starred Review, Publishers Weekly

"Laugh-out-loud humor deftly mixes with insight into a troubled girl's pain over her parents' divorce.... Nielsen has real talent for comedy, zoning in on just the right level of snark.... This comic novel scores."
--Kirkus Reviews

."..Violet is a complex, appealing character whose intimate, lively first-person narrative, both droll and heartfelt, discusses classmate conflicts and crushes as well as her insecurities and her gradual acceptance of what she can and cannot control. Violet's growth and authentic range of emotions ... ring true in this very engaging read."
--Booklist

Praise for Word Nerd

"This is a tender, often funny story with some really interesting characters. It will appeal to word nerds, but even more to anyone who has ever longed for acceptance or had to fight unreasonable parental restrictions."
--Starred Review from School Library Journal

."..A realistic, poignant portrait of one teen who overcomes nearly unbearable feelings of grief and guilt."
"--Kirkus Reviews"

Shortlist - Governor General's Award - Children's Literature (2012)

."..A realistic, poignant portrait of one teen who overcomes nearly unbearable feelings of grief and guilt."
"--Kirkus Reviews"

"Nielsen treats a heavy subject with a light, optimistic touch, and while Henry's passion and distress are evident, his wacky commitment to 'Saturday Night Smash-up' and his own ironic, yet earnest, perspective leavens the serious subject matter."
""--"The Toronto Star
"
."..Henry's is a tough story to read and I can only imagine how hard it was to write it. But it's one that really needs to be heard. And honestly, I couldn't have pictured anyone but Nielsen telling it."
""--"Lavender Lines "

Beautiful and thought provoking "The Reluctant Journal of Henry K. Larsen "is filled with lessons, heartache, pain, anger, family and friendship. Wonderfully done...."
""--"Book Nerd"

."..a highly emotional story about a family that blames one another, and themselves, for an unimaginable tragedy. Nielsen's balance of humor and pathos is finely honed, making this a surprisingly breezy read for so heavy a topic."
--"Booklist"

FINALIST, BC Book Prizes' Sheila A. Egoff Children's Literature Prize
""The Reluctant Journal of Henry K. Larsen "by Susin Nielsen is an engaging grief story. Thought-provoking and relevant, it addresses the effects of bullying in a realistic, compelling and compassionate way, exemplifying the adage 'There are two sides to every story.' Henry's journey is moving and weirdly, wildly funny."
"--"Jury's Citation, Governor General's Literary Award in Children's Text
..".Words and writing are often a salvation in Nielsen's YA fiction. Henry is forced to keep a journal by his therapist; he is at first reluctant, then obsessive about it. A born diarist, he exhibits the idiosyncratic voice of a memoirist, one keenly interested in documenting both his inner and outer worlds. He captures both with humour and heart.... Yet the novel is a dramedy, and believably balances lightness and darkness. It is a shame when the reader must put down the journal and say goodbye to Henry."
--"The National Post"
