"Butcher tells this story simply while keeping the reader wanting to read more and allowing the reader to experience the thrill and fear of being on the 'winter road.' I would definitely add this title to any middle or high school library." - School Library Connection
"One of my favourite things about Orca titles is how often I end up learning things from them, and this novel is no exception…Winter Road is a simply written, interesting story that would be suitable for late elementary or junior high readers." - CM Magazine
"The writing is straightforward with uncomplicated, short sentences, but [the] plotline is immersive. Written between a third and fourth grade reading level, this [book] will particularly appeal to middle school hi-lo readers." - School Library Journal
