Kirkus Review for Somewhere Between Dandelions

“A bittersweet tale that imaginatively explores themes of grief, loss, and first love. Although the love story and the twists and turns of Claire’s family secret are the main focus of the narrative, there are quiet moments that raise engaging questions about how different types of people deal with grief and moving on. Throughout, Harmon’s pacing remains brisk without feeling rushed, which allows her to pack a lot of drama into the story; she also ties up all the narrative strands in a neatly satisfactory way.

So listen… I am a slow reader. Like a snail’s pace most of the time. But, let me tell you this. I READ THIS BOOK IN 6 HOURS! It is the perfect length and you don’t need a magnifying glass to read the text, which at my age is much appreciated! The story grabs you from the first page and doesn’t let go. Usually this type of YA is not my thing, but it has made me realize that I might be missing out on some good books! This is a debut novel and if she continues to put out work like this she’s going to be very successful.

From the beginning and throughout, I was captivated by Harmon’s poetic writing. The story unfolds naturally and on-pace, while revealing surprise twists and turns that kept me guessing. The conclusion ties up loose ends nicely, but with just enough uncertainty that the reader can imagine some of the outcomes for these characters, which I always appreciate. The title, the cover, and the language all set the tone of this ethereal and beautiful novel. I highly recommend it!
