Reviews

An Indies Introduce Selection
"A gorgeous story about the joy that's possible when we allow hope into our hearts. Wise and wondrous, this is truly a novel to cherish." --Katherine Applegate, New York Times-bestselling author of Wishtree and The One and Only Ivan

"Lackey tackles difficult topics including addiction and loss with infinite gentleness." - School Library Journal, starred review

"A beautiful, nuanced story of how love and grief can coexist." - Mariama J. Lockington, author of For Black Girls Like Me

"An emotional tale filled with unique characters, heartbreaking realities, and a touch of magical realism." - Booklist

"Lackey's compassionately drawn story ponders hope, grief, and found family, warming the heart while avoiding an overly neat conclusion." - Publishers Weekly

"With heart-wrenching, distressing flashbacks to life with her mother and grandmother before entering the foster system and heartwarming bittersweet moments with her new extended family, Lackey balances Red's navigation of her new reality. Red's occasional, interspersed letters to her mother add further poignancy. Painful to read--in a good way." - Kirkus

"Lackey deftly draws readers into Red's tumultuous emotional journey; with its strong narrative voice, interspersed with letters and journal entries in Red's own words, the text resonates with a mixture of hope and hurt, strength and vulnerability." - The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
