Reviews

"Wonderfully engaging...captures the way adolescence renders one's own identity somehow unknowable, perhaps because 'we contain various versions of ourselves, ' and high school is the time of maximum pressure to choose just one." --The Boston Globe

"Amusing, hypnotic...Like a contemporary version of The Wizard of Oz or its coming-of-age antecedent, Alice in Wonderland, Judy's experiences of adolescence are exhilarating, terrifying, and almost uniformly surreal." --Time Out (New York)

"Compelling...Big Girl Small brings back high school in raw, oozing detail, like a psychic skinned knee." --Maureen Corrigan, NPR's Fresh Air

"A fine novel...The desire to find out precisely what [happened to Judy] will keep you reading as fast as you can." --The Dallas Morning News

"The most engaging novel I've read in many years...It's sad, funny, quirkily suspenseful, and---most of all---beautiful. I can't imagine a more satisfying read....A book for everyone." --Darin Strauss, author of Chang and Eng and More Than It Hurts You
