All the Greys on Greene Street Reviews

  • Tory
    You know what? Biting the bullet. Five stars. This is a book written by an AUTHOR. Laura Tucker is someone who knows how to WRITE: to create characters, scenarios, settings, dialogue that all are from-the-gut authentic. Her words are phenomenal. Descriptions: evocative; tangible. The characters are ...

    A sensitive portrait of a young girl struggling with her place in the world after her father runs off to France for mysterious reasons and her mother retreats to her bedroom and will not come out.

    3.5 solid stars!12-year-old Olympia is an artist living in SoHo in 1981, which isn’t all that uncommon in her neighborhood.

    There are more books being written for a middle grade audience revolving around mental illness. This is one. This one interestingly takes place in 1981 in SoHo, New York City.

Ollie feels she can't tell anyone else, not even her two best friends Alex and Richard, that her mother hasn't gotten out of bed i...

    I found this painfully slow. The main character's father runs off to France before the novel begins--and then nothing really happens for a good, long while. The book is about a child in fairly a desperate situation but there is little urgency to the narrative. I also didn't think that Olympia made a...
  • Leonard Kim
    In style and pace, not a kid’s book but a grownup book with a kid protagonist. Just a few days ago, I finished another book with a mom who wouldn’t get out of bed (The True History of Lyndie B. Hawkins). That ends up being what this book is about, but it takes a very long time for that to ...
