"In crafting a juvenile thriller with a heart, Salisbury shows that she understands the craftiness of writing. Plot is key, but a plot alone is not enough. Readers must be made to feel for the lead characters. The plot must act as resistance training, pushing the main character to exhibit new muscles of the head, heart and soul. . . . Bailey pullss a Columbus, taking the long way around. In doing so, she makes the readers respect and her not only for her heart, but also because she shows she has a brain. . .Salisbury understands that these are new times, in which nuclear families have been exploded with all the power and psychic damage of a nucelar bomb. In these new times, we need new books to raise the children well. 'Sisters' fills that bill nicely." James M. Abraham, book columnist, the Charlotte Sun.
"'No Sisters Sisters Club'" continues the Bailey Fish Adventure series, which is especially recomended to young readers, ages 8-12," James A Cox, Children's Bookwatch, Midwest Book Review.
"Every time I tried to put down the book, I found myself saying 'one more chapter.' They are short, which moves the story and adds to the suspense, but also makes it the perfect reading for reluctant readers. The author quickly sets a stage and engages you in Bailey's world, especially her emotions. I love how she drew on the other books in Frank Baum's Land of Oz series to build out this story. This fast-paced chapter book offeres preteens a story with wonderul charcaters, mystery and adventure and themes they can relate to: divorce, extended families, absentee parents and personal safety. The end of the book is packed with information to round out the story and also help with vocabulary. Borrow or Buy: This is a very enjoyable story, and like a lot of really good mysteries . . . even if you know the ending, it's fun to read again." The Reading Tub
