Here's what reviewers are saying about Hippie Hotel:

This novel works beautifully on two levels. Narrated in Tracy's wry, edgy voice, it pokes a lot of fun at adults and their self-help pretensions. At the same time, it portrays an anxious kid slowly figuring out how to get past her quick-draw preconceptions about people. Romance, happily, is one reward.
The Washington Post

Graham chooses a small canvas and fills it with panache…Graham charts her story with wit and sympathy, and it will be a rare reader who doesn't leave this book wishing for a stay at a real-life "Hippie Hotel."
Publisher's Weekly Forecasts

Readers will immediately recognize themselves in Graham's spot-on dialogue and her subtle portrayal of family dynamics. A tender, funny debut.

A "must read" selection.
Working Mother

A rather sophisticated version of the ever-appealing ugly duckling tale. . . [Hippie Hotel] will have great appeal to YA readers.
KLIATT, the bimonthly magazine for libraries and classrooms serving young adults

Readers will cheer for Tracy as she learns to see beyond appearances and to understand that there are things about her that are pretty wonderful.
The Buffalo News

A winning tale of a 14-year-old girl who regains her life.
