“This book is so well written and Hannah is so compelling, her voice lingers in my mind long after I have finished reading. If Hannah’s Voice doesn’t end up on the bestseller’s list, on every notable list... I will be shocked. I will definitely keep my eyes open for more from Robb Grindstaff!”

“I had the pleasure of reading an early manuscript of Hannah’s Voice, and it deeply affected me then. Through the rewriting and editing process, it has truly been transformed into a searingly memorable story and will stay with the reader long after the novel is put down. Ms. Kauten’s review contains a fine statement of the novel’s plot. The primary theme is wonderfully clever—the indelible importance of truth to one little girl, and the parodic impulse of zealous adults to defined the meaning of her silence to their own ends. In no other literary work have I ever witnessed a more eloquent example of the gravity of one’s silence. Grindstaff’s prose is unadorned, deft, carefully constructed—but I think what sets this novel apart is its humor. Grindstaff has a knack for portraying the drama of Hannah’s dilemma in a way that makes you giggle.”

“I have been mulling this review over in my head for days: every day I have a new approach, a new thought about the story, or a new idea that is the best thing ever about this story. There are so many things to adore about this story, which makes it more difficult to not miss an element. I should start by saying that this book will call to you if you put it down; it demands that you continue on the journey with Hannah, and doesn’t allow you to savor it slowly. Were it not so beautifully written with a style that shows Robb Grindstaff as a wonderful storyteller, this would be a simple book to review. So unlike any other book I have read, yet so comfortable in its difference, it is safe for me to say that this is another of my favorite reads of the year.”
