"Smart, bold, heartbreaking -- sophisticated teen readers will be wowed." -- Kirkus, starred review

"An engaging story and strong purchase with some valuable lessons about love, friendship, and growing up." -- School Library Journal, starred review

". . . perfectly planted in the sweet spot of YA writing. It's good for the smart literary teen and the teen who plows through salacious bestsellers. It's also for the adult who wants to remember how hard and how beautiful it was to be a teenager. This one is highly recommended." -- Quill & Quire, starred review

"More than a teen romance, this poignant, intimate novel is a thoughtful, mature exploration of the joys -- and hazards -- of love of all sorts." -- Horn Book

"Moore's vivid writing and keen understanding of interpersonal dynamics bring this to life." -- Booklist

"Flannery is a brilliant Young Adult novel -- no matter how old you are." -- Atlantic Books Today

"Reading Flannery is a compelling, heady experience, and the heroine - thoughtful, flawed, brave and funny - will stay with the reader long after the book's very satisfying ending." -- National Reading Campaign Readerly

"Flannery is a fully realized and nuanced protagonist, contradictory in all the most consistent ways. " -- The National Post

"This is an author who grips you with her impeccable use of language." -- Maclean's
