Swept Away  (writing as Michelle Dalton - Pulse/Simon&Schuster)

    “The novel’s main messages of learning to like and accept oneself, with confidence and happiness resulting from showing one’s true personality rather than pretending, are ones that female readers need to hear, especially those beginning to date. Moreover, its realistic, bittersweet ending perfectly shows Mandy’s growth and her cheerful understanding of issues yet to overcome” VOYA

  “Dalton imparts simple wisdom about being true to oneself and seeing beyond surface impressions of other people... readers seeking a sweet story of first love will sigh appreciatively.” Kirkus
