  • "As she turns twelve during the summer of 1953, Penny gains new insights into herself and her family while also learning a secret about her father's death"
  • ""A través de los ojos de Penny, una chica de once años de familia italoamericana, conoceremos aspectos de la historia reciente de los Estados Unidos y de cómo las circunstancias de la guerra afectaron, a veces de manera dramática, a los americanos de origen italiano. Es una historia de familias: lo que las une y lo que las separa." --From publisher's description."
  • "Touching and multilayered, this novel tells the story of Penny, an 11-year-old Italian American living in 1950s New Jersey who is looking forward to a summer of butter pecan ice cream, swimming, and baseball. Penny's idyll is shattered by several events, though. First, her mother starts dating the milkman. Then, Penny's arm goes through the wringer on the washing machine. Finally, details about her father's death, which her family has refused to discuss until this point, begin to surface. This clearly drawn tale eloquently describes the intricacies of family life. Conmovedora y multidimensiona."
  • "Inspired by the author's own Italian American family, Penny from Heaven is a shining story about the everyday and the extraordinary, about a time in America's history, not all that long ago, when being Italian meant that you were the enemy. But most of all, it's a story about families--about the things that tear them apart and bring them together. And it's told with all the richness and the layers, the love and the laughter of a Sunday dinner at Nonny's."
