Reviews

β˜… "In this refreshing first novel, Sellet manages the large cast of characters well, while portraying the protagonist's big family, her small circle of friends, and her first romance with considerable wit and insight. As Mary struggles with the practical and emotional troubles arising from her many mistakes, her rueful, self-deprecating narrative is sometimes impossible to read without laughing out loud. A smart, engaging romance."
--Booklist, STARRED review

"A sweet story with a focus on family and friendships."--Kirkus

"Put in the hands of readers who love a smart and precocious cast of characters, reminiscent of Amy Heckerling's film Clueless." --School Library Journal
