One of the ‘best books for kids this winter’

Not Suitable for Family Viewing was recently singled out as a holiday pick for teens by the Toronto Star. Here’s what reviewer Dierdre Baker had to say:

In Vicki Grant’s Not Suitable for Family Viewing (HarperCollins, 290 pages, $14.99, ages 12+), Robin’s mother Mimi is a popular talk-show host, while Robin sits at home in their Manhattan apartment like a slug. When she finds a school ring and photograph Mimi has hidden away, Robin heads to Nova Scotia to see if she can unearth the story behind them. What she finds surprises her in every way – and includes some nicely comic girl-meets-guy scenes, followed up with a satisfyingly convoluted mystery that involves impersonation, attempted murder and the dangers of relieving oneself outdoors.
