Reviews of Picture This

Boston Globe, July 22, 2012 – Pick of the Week: Picture This

Ellen Meeropol of Odyssey Bookshop in South Hadley recommends “Picture This” by Jacqueline Sheehan (Morrow): “In a sequel to ‘Lost & Found,’ also set on Maine’s Peaks Island, Rocky Pelligrino is contacted by Natalie, who is just out of foster care and claims she’s the unacknowledged daughter of Rocky’s late husband. This page-turner is a profound exploration of damage done in childhood, the nature of evil, and the difficulty of knowing what is true.”
