"Topics such as homelessness and mental illness are presented in a way that the reader can easily relate to. This would be a good book to enhance a hi-lo collection. Recommended."

"Like many fiction titles focussing on mental health issues, Three Good Things plays a role in breaking down barriers and starting up conversations around the topic...The story is to be commended for providing a safe place for readers to explore the issue of mental health and build empathy towards others whose full story we often do not know."

"Leni is a strong character living a very difficult life...Jake and his family finally provide a touchstone for her, and her mother’s critical illness provides her with a reason to call her grandfather. Readers will learn that there is definitely a time and place to ask for help!"
Kirkus Reviews - September 15, 2015
"Peterson keeps this novella punchy and lean, catering to readers who need compelling plot-driven stories. She portrays Leni as tough and savvy but still young and vulnerable, an appealing characterization. An effective, quick, and involving story."
