Reviews

"The book takes up consent, slut shaming, issues of class and (to a lesser extent) race, unrequited love, and competition between siblings--and then adds a tragic accident and the resulting guilt and fractures... Hart holds it all together and closes with an ending that retains a measure of hope without becoming unrealistically perfect." --Publishers Weekly

"Raychel's interactions with Carson raise important questions about what it means to consent to sexual activity..." --Kirkus Reviews

"Thought-provoking moments regarding such issues as female sexuality, racial microaggressions, and class differences add depth to the characters. Recommend to fans of character-driven novels such as Sara Zarr's How to Save a Life (2011) or Jennifer Niven's All the Bright Places (2015)." --Booklist

..". Hart does a good job of handling her ambitious plot...Like Laurie Halse Anderson's Speak and Courtney Summers's All the Rage, this is an important novel for teens and adults to discuss together." --School Library Journal

"This memorable debut novel is told in the alternating perspectives of Raychel and Matt. Both characters are very well portrayed as complex characters with strengths and weaknesses. The supporting cast is also well developed, with most characters avoiding the trap of falling into mere stereotypes...This would be an excellent addition to most high school libraries." --VOYA, starred review
