"In this strong first novel, a teenager whose school project forces him to visit a senile woman in a convalescent home becomes wrapped up in her stories...Derby is adept at incorporating telling details of parochial school and home life, often with touches of humor. A novel that deals with hero worship and that has much to say to adolescent readers."-School Library Journal
