Reviews

"From the first sentence ("I'm not a liar"), collection editor Hutchinson grabs readers with a raw, spot-on monologue that invites readers into heavy issues teens are struggling to navigate, many with distant or absent parents. Due to the mature, often raw content, this is a book that would also be valuable for adult readers who have the courage to face the darker things teens don't tell them. A compelling, uncomfortable narrative that lets readers know that the tragedy the world can bring to teens transcends socio-economics, gender, and race."--Kirkus Reviews
"Many of the stories delve into intense darkness, and there are no easy resolutions, even as the focus rests on a group of diverse people learning to trust each other. A compelling examination of the teen psyche."--Booklist, STARRED REVIEW
"The kids are considered "human garbage," as Hutchinson's character puts it, but their choices and situations are born of sharp, complicated moments and realities. Though the voices are distinct, it's the overall experience of disparate people finding common understanding that lingers."--Publishers Weekly
