Reviews

"An enthralling, unconventional boy-meets-girl story." --People(four stars)

"In Banishing Verona, Livesey, a first-rate storyteller, examines the ties that bind families and lovers. Her take on life is original, her use of perspective is deft, and her prose lovely. Zeke is captivating." --USA Today

"Livesey is interested not in medical conditions but in the human condition. . . . In fact, [she] expands (as is fiction's mission) our notion of what being human can mean." --The New York Times

"In Livesey's deft hands, their connection is as credible (and incredible) as love itself....[She] pulls it off effortlessly." --The Boston Globe

"Tantalizing . . . Livesey has taken a familiar plot device and has turned it into such a delicious literary construct that it seems new." --Seattle Post-Intelligencer
