...an excellent blend and deftly written look at 1930s America in between the Great Depression and the second Great War highly recommended for fans of coming of age fiction....
Midwest Book Review
Of the Author:
(Christine is) a soulful and lively writer.
Independent Publisher's Award
For Will the Real Carolyn Keene Please Stand Up:
... Keleny offers readers a behind-the-scenes look at the dedicated and determined creators of the series. She also reveals the competing and often conflicting visions each author had for Nancy. This novel is entertaining, smart, and exceptionally well researched. It is certain to interest anyone who is curious about the surprising mystery behind the Nancy Drew mysteries

For Intrigue in Istanbul:
That Agnes is drawn to a copy of To Kill a Mockingbird in an airport bookshop feels only too apt. She is a Scout Finch from the Upper Midwest, a little older, but with the same qualities of curiosity, courage, and boldness of heart. Like Scout, she engages the reader directly--and her digressive moments are wildflowers scattered throughout the text. I am old enough to be Agnes' grandfather, but I felt as if she speaks to me as readily as she does to her YA peers. A skillful feat of authorial ventriloquism.
