Critical Praise

"Through Claire, Tracey Bateman leads us in and out of the corners of real life where children misbehave (and triumph), trees fall in unfortunate places and a romantic kiss can still be a doozy of a good one. What I love about the Claire Everett series is that through it all, Claire knows best, even when she doesn't-which is so relatable."

——Charlene Ann Baumbich, author of the Dearest Dorothy Series

"I love Claire Everett! With poignancy and humor, Claire confronts life, romance, and mothering with an authenticity and nerve that grabs my heart. I just wanted to climb inside the book and hang out with her. A delightful read that charmed me and made me believe that, indeed, CLAIRE KNOWS BEST!"

——Susan May Warren, award-winning author of Everything's Coming up Josey

"Whether you're eighteen or eighty, you will find something to love about Claire! She is every girl, and I loved sharing in her life and can't wait to see her again. Tracey Bateman is a wonderful, snappy voice in women's fiction."

——Kristin Billerbeck, author of What a Girl Wants and She's All That
