Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A captivating portrait of the free-love, hippie world of Denver in the 1970s, brought to life in the pitch-perfect voice of a girl who scams and scavenges her way through childhood, carving her own identity and creating her own family along the way.

In her acclaimed debut novel, Joanna Rose brilliantly evokes a tumultuous era in our history and introduces an unforgettable heroine whose coming-of-age is at once delightfully idiosyncratic and touchingly universal.

"This is a wondrous, uncanny book, like few others you will have read....A story so assured and accomplished that its seems the work of a seasoned novelist at the peak of her talent". — Floyd Skloot, Portland Oregonian

"Sarajean's account of her life and experiences are bound to embed themselves thoroughly in a reader's memory.' — Candace Horgan, The Denver Post

"Little Miss Strange is a novel boldly reminding us that peace, love, and happiness weren't the only things to come out of the sixties and seventies...a gloriously descriptive novel, packed with colorful details reminiscent of the dream, the era of free-love left behind". — Molly MacDermot, Redbook

"The ending alone may be as perfect as any novel written this year. Four stars". — Barbara Holliday, Detroit News/Free Press

Lilly Morgen, January 1, 2009 (view all comments by Lilly Morgen)
I just finished reading "Little Miss Strange" by Joanna Rose and I enjoyed this narrative tale of a girl growing up in the late 60's, early 70's. It is not over-the-top in it's portrayal of the hip generation, and yet it gives a clear picture of what life really was like for young people of this time. I highly recommend it to mature high school age students and adults. The character's voice is strong and artfully done. It truly draws the reader into the story.
