What Advanced Readers are Saying about MARI IN THE MARGINS

The publisher of Mari in the Margins has started to hear from advanced readers, and here’s what they’re saying:

Caroline Starr Rose, author of the verse novels MAY B. and Blue Birds:

“A celebration of family and creative expression. Marivel finds her voice and discovers herself through the transformative power of poetry.”

Summer Rachel Short, Author of The Legend of Greyhallow:

“Mari in the Margins is a heartwarming story that celebrates the chaos, noise, and love of a big family. Watching Mari find her place in the world was a joy!”

Ellie Terry, Author of the middle grade verse novel Forget Me Not:

“I wish I'd had this book when I was twelve! Mari's charming doodles are a delightful addition to her already charming poetry. Kids will relate to Mari's desire to step out of the margins and become her own self. An encouraging story that captures the joys, frustrations, and chaos of growing up in a big family.”

Emma Fox, Author of The Carver and the Queen (who wrote a review in the form of a Mari-inspired poem):

This review

is a friendship poem

for Marivel,

who thinks that no one sees her


that's only because

she goes so deeply into the heart of things

that she becomes a part of you

and you of her.

If you’re interested in reading Mari in the Margins or purchasing it for a young reader in your life, it will be available for preorder from Bandersnatch Books on March 12! The book is set to release on May 14, 2024.
