"Sweet Tea is a fine young adult story...So many titles on mental illness narrow the focus to coping and neglect the overall bigger picture of how home life with mental illness can interact with a wider world outside home's front door...Sweet Tea offers a bittersweet taste of what life's all about, and will immerse young adult and adult readers alike in a life well lived."   -D. Donovan, Book Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

"In this day and age, society still finds it difficult to face the challenges families encounter that are living with a mentally ill parent. Ms. Decker's novel brings these issues to light in a realistic manner that engages readers as well as helps them understand…"- Christine Harris, Co-President, Middlesex County, NJ NAMI

"Decker brings to life the chaos, confusion and poignancy of loving and living with a mentally ill mother. I couldn't stop reading, even when my heart was aching and my brain was cringing." - Shari Sanford,Paperback Exchange Bookstore

"Compelling and real. Everyone, teenagers and adults can relate to this story. I cried, laughed and learned!"- Shari Stein, Media Specialist, J. P. Stevens High School

"Wendy Lynn Decker has a very unique and talented gift of writing. I really enjoyed the down home style that assimilates a Tom Sawyer genre and I wouldn't be surprised if this book became recommended reading for contemporary school systems." -Ray Costa, LPC, LCADC, NCC
