- Earth Girl hauls you into her story from the first paragraph. The interplay between fantasy and reality, past, present and future flow seamlessly into an environmental story that we are all living out now. A real tour de force that is inspiring, probable and possible when lived through the main characters. ~ Stephanie Sorrell, author of The Therapist’s Cat
- Jan Krause Greene’s debut novel is one of those books you just can’t put down. The story is compelling and the characters keep you wanting more. Most readers will be inextricably drawn into Gloria’s dilemma quickly. The plot twists and turns its way to an unexpected , but satisfying, finale. The moral heart of this intriguing tale centers on difficult issues that don’t have simple answers. Greene’s characters don’t find the answers, but they make you hope that someone will. After you are done, you will keep thinking about it for a long, long time. ~ Julie Mancini, Founding Director of Literary Arts Portland
- The new emerging consciousness unfolding across the planet, felt by millions, is about remembering, tapping into and harnessing the gift of the intuitive mind and no character has yet to exemplify this zeitgeist like Earth Girl. I Call Myself Earth Girl is a modern Giver, The Phantom Tollbooth with the speed of The Never Ending Story, but there is one difference: Earth Girl brings us a message for our world that may just prevent a nuclear war. ~ Christine Harmon, author of Clueberry World
