Quill & Quire
Until Niagara Falls is an excellent story with believable characters dealing with growing up, and it would be a fine read-aloud choice. The plot is fast paced, and the ending is both satisfying and heartwarming. Highly Recommended

Jennifer Maruno forces her characters to walk the tightrope between right and wrong in order to escape loneliness. Compelling.

1960s Niagara Falls is vividly portrayed in this charming story of two utterly different girls struggling toward friendship.
Karen Bass, author of The Hill
Readers at any age may see themselves on the pages of this superb historical fiction novel — I know I did. Times have changed, styles have changed, even the expectations placed on children’s behaviour have changed, but children’s hopes, needs, and dreams never do … Until Niagara Falls proves it.
