Praise and Reviews for A Taste of Heaven

"Sweet and engaging, this novel and its characters will appeal to any girls looking for a contemporary story about growing up, friendship and family."
—Canadian Children's Book News

"Through well-crafted writing, convincing dialogue, and credible characters...all reminiscent of vintage Judy Blume, Tilly takes readers into the fundamentally different lives of two girls as they manoeuvre through the often comical, sometimes bittersweet and melodramatic trials and tribulations of tweenhood."
—Quill & Quire


"There are more than a few lessons to learn about friendship here...[Madison & Alyssa] both learn a little bit more about appreciating what they have rather than what they don't, a valuable lesson for anyone to learn."
—CanLit for Little Canadians

"Meg Tilly brings a realistic portrayal of the struggles we often face in friendships -- trust...Well written, humorous, and touching, A Taste of Heaven is a novel I highly recommend to young readers."
