Review:

"An intriguing fantasy." -- The Horn Book

"[Charlotte Sometimes] has all the pleasures of a good time-travel yarn...Adolescence is all about forging an identity, and this novel speaks to those questions of 'who am I?' and 'how do other people see me?' in an abstract, haunting way...For those of you with middle-grade children, I recommend Charlotte Sometimes wholeheartedly, and for those of you who may have read it as a child, I recommend returning to it, if only because rereading is one of the only forms of time travel available to us." --Hannah Gersen, The Millions
