Editorial Reviews for The Unforgettable Guinevere St. Clair


"If Scout Finch had had a sister, she would be future "world-famous lawyer" Guinevere St. Clair....Makechnie's debut will have readers in stitches. Gwyn's voice is distinct and likable, carrying readers through the eventful narrative with ease. Guinevere St. Clair is indeed 100 percent unforgettable." (*STARRED Kirkus Reviews - April 2018)

"The smart dialogue and flowing description...highlights the eccentric, yet wholly believable characters. This is part mystery, part study of the human heart, and one pierced with rays of hope. Everyone here, adults and children, have lessons they need to learn, and first-time novelist Makechnie offers them those paths, in startling ways."   (*STARRED Booklist Review June 2018)

"Spirited and layered...Makechnie's novel is a big-hearted adventure about coming home." (Publisher's Weekly April 2018)

"The underlying mystery keeps the pages turning...A promising debut" (School Library Journal March 2018)

I was ten when Gaysie Cutter tried to kill me. It was just like her too, - always leaving a bad first impression.
