– Kirkus, starred review.
Take a look at the great bookseller quotes praising SUNNYSIDE PLAZA:
“Sunnyside Plaza is a gem of a read! I highly recommend this mystery to anyone who loves to learn about people. Scott Simon got it all right when creating characters with intellectual disabilties and showing the strength that human connections make in one’s life.”
Kathy Detwiler, Buttonwood Books & Toys (Cohasset, MA)
“When the residents of Sunnyside Plaza – a group home for adults with developmental disabilities – start unexpectedly passing away, a young woman must work with the other Sunnysiders to figure out what’s happening. Scott Simon’s characters are instantly emotionally engaging and their resiliency and determination to help and protect each other will have readers of all ages deeply invested in their story.”
