Reviews

"McCullough realistically portrays Sutton's need for order alongside the frustration that both feel when things go awry. Sweet communal details, such as food prepared by Sutton's ethnically diverse neighbors and the gluten-free French toast that Elizabeth makes, bring this warm tale to life."--Publishers Weekly
"With chapters switching narrative focus between the two protagonists, their inner turmoil is handled with sensitivity, creating a character-driven tale that doesn't skimp on plot. . . . The notable representation of female characters in diverse STEM fields is heartening. Minor perils and likable characters make for a cozy and enjoyable read."--Kirkus Reviews
"Offers a realistic snapshot of modern families and the challenges that arise when trying to blend them. . . . The likable cast and relatable premise will resonate with readers grappling with the uncertainty of change."--Booklist
