“[In Premeditated Myrtle,] a saucy, likable heroine shines in a mystery marked by clever, unexpected twists.”—Kirkus Reviews

“[Amina’s Song is] written as beautifully as Amina’s voice surely is, this compassionate, timely novel is highly recommended for all.”—Booklist, starred review

“Smibert packs a lot into the story… her characters and setting are fully evoked, and her language is both thoughtful and precise. [She] has a talent for ghost stories. A satisfying conclusion to a worthy series.”—Kirkus Reviews
