Reviews about Higher Ground (2):
Although billed as a YA title, Higher Ground has crossover appeal as a classic initiation story. The characters felt authentic and were unique and universal at the same time. I especially enjoyed the setting since I was born in West Virginia and recognized the landscape and landmarks. Highly recommended.
Reading this book is like making a new acquaintance whom you're at first just curious about but in no time find yourself fiercely in love with. Life in small-town and hill-country Appalachia in the 50's and 60's is recounted with such humor, affection and deep understanding, and with such telling detail, that it becomes a bit of our own history. And the journey of Blair Ellen through the tumult of adolescence to the cusp of maturity is one we have all taken, regardless of time and place. This happens to be the first of a trilogy (I inadvertently read the last first with no impairment to my enjoyment) and after finishing each volume, I felt like Oliver Twist crying for more! more!`
