Like the author, the book has garnered a large reception on social media, complete with reviews like the following from Ella Dillon of Mountain Mama Book Reviews: "Kathleen Jacobs boldly and gracefully creates the life of Betsy Blossom Brown, a young girl with Asperger's syndrome, who is an insightful character that keeps her spunk and curiosity throughout her years. Betsy Blossom Brown broaches difficult topics and exposes the delicate nature of the human spirit when faced with unforeseen trials. Jacobs is a gift to Appalachian literature, as she develops Betsy Blossom Brown's story while creating a beautifully accurate depiction of West Virginia's geography and culture."
