Published: Knopf Publishing Group - February 6th, 2018

"I Am, I Am, I Am is a breathtaking memoir about 17 moments in O’Farrell life that almost caused her death. There is no linear timeline to the stories.  They are not in order of when they happened. You can pick up anywhere and each tale reads like its own short story. In one of the tales, the author explains that she is writing these stories for her children who may run into the same issues that she has had her whole life, and hopes to help guide them when they have similar experiences. She details each of these 17 times in her life, elegantly and honestly, in a way that makes you think about similar situations that you’ve experienced and how easy and quick life passes by. Some of the stories make you sad, make you feel helpless as she details emotional roller coaster rides, while others are exhilarating and striking and make you hold your breath to see what happens next. As Maggie is already a published author of literary fiction, it’s no wonder that her elegant writing sweeps you into her life and stays with you long after you’ve finished reading."--Reviewed by Sallie

Published: Chronicle Books - May 2nd, 2017

"This delightfully colorful and informative picture book takes the reader inside the life of seven kids in different countries between the age of 7 and 11. We get to see illustrations of their families, their meals, their homes, their commutes, their schools, their experiences and the side by side comparisons really help illuminate how beautifully different and how familiar all of their lives are to each other. The cultures of each of these kids shine bright through the pages as we get a glimpse into their daily routines and learn ‘how they do it.’"--Reviewed by Sallie
