Reviews

"Robin Benway writes with her full heart. Emmy & Oliver is a genuinely sweet and funny novel bursting with the inextinguishable forces of love-between parents and children, distant and inseparable friends, new and reunited lovers."--Stephanie Perkins, New York Times bestselling author of Isla and the Happily Ever After
"At times heartfelt, funny, irreverent, and ultimately satisfying... a good choice for fans of Stephanie Perkins's Anna and the French Kiss or any of Sarah Dessen's novels."--School Library Journal
Emmy & Oliver is wonderful. Funny, heartbreaking, and true... just like life. Robin Benway has written characters I felt like I'd known forever, and was so sad to see go. A must read.--Morgan Matson, author of Since You've Been Gone
"Benway fearlessly examines the effects of loss and return from every perspective... Hope, confusion, frustration, and love coexist without shame as teens and parents come to grips with the realization that nothing stays the same no matter how desperately we want it to."--Booklist
"This realistic and painful story... twists and turns... until the bittersweet, yet perfect, ending.--Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)
"Emmy's narration is smart and sassy, and the romance plot is satisfying... An unusual blend of a soulmate story, a melodramatic plot, and a realistic book about adjustment, growth, and change, this will please romance fans as well as pragmatic souls with a sentimental streak."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Benway examines split loyalties, the impact of confessionals, and how broken bonds can be mended... Benway's intriguing premise and honest tone are a winning combination as she movingly portrays the growing trust between her characters."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Benway peels away the surface and digs down to the raw emotions the teens and their families feel... as a portrait of the emerging adolescent, it engages."--Kirkus Reviews
