Lowery writes [her debut] with heart and ends Zoey’s sixth-grade year with a stirring speech about being yourself and learning from one another… This outspoken narrator should monologue her way into readers’ hearts and teach them a few valuable lessons along the way.  

KIRKUS Reviews

The mind of Zoey Song is like a torrential river after a storm. Zoey’s Zany Life by Mikayla Lowery is one of the best examples of a child’s mind expressing “stream of consciousness.” This book is a wonderful, wacky adventure.

Portland Book Review

This author brought forth a fabulous read that I will cherish forever and will go back and re-read just so that I can feel what it is to be that age again and again.

Jenny Bynum Reviews

A wonderful read for late elementary/middle schoolers with strong narration, and identity as the main theme.
