Review

Praise for The Fall of Innocence

* "Sanchez deftly shows the long-lasting impact of the assault. . . . An intimate and tragic look at how traumatic incidents affect individuals, their families, and others around them." --
Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW

* "Sanchez writes with stunning detail, showcasing the beauty that can be found in small moments, in family interactions, in nature, and in seemingly everyday objects. . . and illustrates how a trauma like Emilia’s has widespread effects." --
School Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW

* "It is hard to imagine a more beautifully told, more moving, or more authentic story of one family’s journey through unbearable pain." --
VOYA, STARRED REVIEW

"Beautifully written but ineffably sad, Emilia’s story is a case study of trauma and its aftermath." --
BCCB

"Emilia’s inner world both captivates and devastates." --
Publishers Weekly

"Internal and contemplative, [this novel's] haunting quality lingers." --Booklist
