DEAR HAITI, LOVE ALAINE earned a STARRED REVIEW from Booklist, a publication by the American Library Association that critically reviews books for librarians, teachers, & booksellers.

Growing up at the library meant MANY book recommendations from our librarians so we’re extremely honored! The full review will be available in the July 1, 2019 issue of Booklist, but here’s an excerpt of the review below.
