Editorial Reviews

Review

 “This warm middle-grade novel explores the lives of first-generation immigrants and the definition of what it really means to be an American.”—Teen Vogue

“For or all the novel’s sober themes, there’s a lightness and brightness to the story borne out by the girls’ spunky quest to win the [cooking] contest."—The New York Times Book Review

"Writing in alternating voices, the authors elegantly interweave issues of racism, financial insecurity, and mental illness into a familiar middle school narrative of identity formation....This tale of a diverse friendship tackles hard topics."—Kirkus

"
A solid story of unexpected friends coming together to break bread."—School Library Journal

"Told in alternating voices, Faruqi and Shovan’s nuanced tale about the thrill of budding friendship is relatable without sacrificing challenging topics." —Publishers Weekly


"Sara and Elizabeth's rocky relationship rings true to tween dynamics, and the writing maintains a hopeful tone as it confronts bigotry with modeled behavior....Short chapters, heavy dialogue and descriptive writing—particularly about food—should appeal to both younger and reluctant readers....This authentic cross-cultural novel offers tastes of identity, assimilation and allyship for fans of middle school friendship stories." —Shelf Awareness

“I would love to sit at a table with Sara and Elizabeth: two entirely believable characters and a lot of delicious food for thought.”   
—LINDA SUE PARK, Newbery Medalist and author of the New York Times bestseller, A Long Walk to Water 

"A Place at the Table is a sensitive and honest book about friendship, family, cultural and racial identity, and one of the most important things that brings us together as people—good food. Faruqi and Shovan skillfully handle these complex topics with nuance, humor, and a joyful culinary appreciation that will leave any reader inspired and hungry!” 
    —VEERA HIRANANDANI , author of The Night Diary, a Newbery Honor Book

“A feast of a novel, full of warmth and insight. Without minimizing the challenges faced by immigrants in our country, Faruqi and Shovan have written a charming, hopeful story about two girls from different cultures who find common ground in the kitchen. Readers will eagerly pull up a chair for this lovely tale of friendship, food, and family.”
    —BARBARA DEE, author of Maybe He Just Likes You
