Advocate.com calls DANNY'S MOM "an excellent and essential read for mothers, adults who work in schools, and the LGBTQ community." Booklist says, "Adult readers may recognize their past selves in the fragile students outside the high school's guidance office…hoping for at least a nod from a reassuring face." In addition, DANNY'S MOM got the lead book review in Instinct Magazine, in which the reviewer writes, "Once you start, it's hard to put down." And a Kirkus Review states:
Wolf writes with insight and authority about an issue that society cannot afford to ignore as she points out that, even though many schools have implemented effective programs to deal with bullying and intolerance, recent cases serve as proof that institutions like [the high school in DANNY'S MOM] do, indeed, exist and that more needs to be done." Readers comment that DANNY'S MOM is a great book club read.
The author is grateful that her novels, CAMP and DANNY'S MOM, have given her a literal bully pulpit: a platform from which to keep the anti-bullying conversation going so that, in concert with professionals, we'll make our camps and schools kinder, gentler places for everyone. For this anti-bullying mission, Elaine Wolf recently won the 2013 Community Upstander Award, presented by the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County (New York).
