Praise for You Never Did Learn to Knock

Children's Literature
Although the majority of the stories end on a positive note, giving this a feel-good tone, the strength of the mother-daughter relationship is such that it can carry this book.

VOYA
The reader is subtly steered through the frustrations and triumphs of persisting with trying relationships to yield closer and more loving family ties. Even though most of the daughters are around age twelve, every female can relate.

School Library Journal
A solid, enjoyable collection due to its breezy style and content
