New Pages Review: "Exploring the vagaries and traumas of family life as well as the difficulty of adapting to new surroundings are two primary themes running through much of the issue’s fiction. Andrea Marcusa grapples with both of these themes in her first-person short story 'Map of Djerba,' about a fourteen year-old New York City boy named Jake who’s sent to live with his grandfather on an island off the coast of Tunisia after his parents are killed in a car accident. In her ambitious story, Marcusa considers with restrained elegance the dual traumas of losing one’s family and being immersed in a new culture, allowing Jake’s rather mature acceptance of these changes to feel more impactful..."

Liz Ahl: "Andrea Marcusa’s 'Map of Djerba' is a lovely short story about a young boy navigating loss and a huge change in his life. It doesn’t hurt that Star Wars features somewhat prominently in the story as well."
