Quotes from Reviews:

The Voice on the Radio
"[Cooney] has taken this novel to extraordinary heights." -- Starred, School Library Journal
"Readers of Cooney’s addictive The Face on the Milk Carton and Whatever Happened to Janie? can start licking their chops. . . .Cooney [has] a special radar for adolescent longings and insecurities. . . ." -- Starred, Publishers Weekly
"A ‘must purchase’. . . . The Voice on the Radio elicits a powerful response in readers and is a real page-turner, so plan to purchase multiple copies to satisfy the demands of your teen readers." -- 5P 5Q, Voice of Youth Advocates

Driver’s Ed
"A wrenching, breathlessly paced plot and an adrenaline-charged romance make Cooney’s latest novel nearly impossible to put down. . . . This modern-day morality tale is as convincing as it is irresistable." -- Starred, Publisher’s Weekly
"Wonderfully written, and very realistic. Reluctant readers as usual will find this author tops." -- VOYA
"A poignant, realistic novel, with nicely drawn characters and a vintage metaphor that’s actually refreshing: A driver’s license. . . . is the ‘ticket’ out of childhood." -- Starred, Booklist
