“A Tennessee 12-year old puts the “cub” in cub reporter, as she searches for a lost cougar cub in Kelly Oliver’s excellent middle grade novel Kassy O’ Roarke, Cub Reporter… Oliver writes in a breezy, kid-friendly style that’s perfect for early middle schoolers, who will easily identity with Kassy, a girl who’s still a child in many ways but beginning to find her independence… the book is a polished, convincing, kid-centered adventure, with endearing characters and a strong sense of middle-school humor…a strong series debut.”
    —BlueInk Review

“While journalism seems her current dream, Kassy’s skills at deduction and gift for analytical thinking make her stand out as a young Sherlock Holmes, ever ready with tweezers and a magnifying glass to ferret out clues in the most unlikely places. Engaging and fun…Kassy O’Roarke, Cub Reporter is well-written and likely to entertain both animal and mystery lovers of all ages. It’s most highly recommended.”
    —Jack Magnus, 5-Star Review, Reader’s Favorite Reviews

“Kassy O’Roarke, Cub Reporter is a whole lot of fun and delivers in every way an adventure story should. The twists and turns in the mystery are clever and unpredictable, and Kassy’s first-person voice bubbles throughout as sassy, down-to-earth, and delightfully frank about how she feels…Kelly Oliver builds more than a detailed mystery. She also creates a heartwarming world populated with believable characters who feel like people you know.”
    —Sarah Scheele, 5-Star Review, Reader’s Favorite Reviews

“I was hooked by the first page and enjoyed the entire story. The plot has twists and turns and is sure to keep readers on their toes as they read it. I love that the ending was happy but also leaves the reader wondering what happens next. I would definitely recommend this book to readers.”
