Lowery writes [her debut] with heart and ends Zoey’s sixth-grade year with a stirring speech about being yourself and learning from one another… This outspoken narrator should monologue her way into readers’ hearts and teach them a few valuable lessons along the way. – KIRKUS Reviews
That this is coming from the mouth of a publishing world prodigy (remember: having your first book published at the age of 35 is considered to be young by publishing world standards) is incredible. I’m 43 years old, and I think even I could stand to hear some of what Lowery is preaching here from time to time. – Zachary Houle, MEDIUM
The mind of Zoey Song is like a torrential river after a storm. Zoey’s Zany Life by Mikayla Lowery is one of the best examples of a child’s mind expressing “stream of consciousness.” This book is a wonderful, wacky adventure. – Portland Book Review
This author brought forth a fabulous read that I will cherish forever and will go back and re-read just so that I can feel what it is to be that age again and again. – Jenny Bynum Reviews
A wonderful read for late elementary/middle schoolers with strong narration, and identity as the main theme. – Marisa Donnelly, The Teacher’s Closet
