Reviews

"A voice as fresh as hers is so rare that at times I caught myself cheering. . . .I'd go anywhere with this writer." --Susannah Meadows, The New York Times

"So fresh, original, and funny you'll be in awe... Tupelo Hassman has created a character you'll never forget. Rory Dawn Hendrix of the Calle has as precocious and endearing a voice as Holden Caulfield of Central Park." --The Boston Globe

"A lyrical and fiercely accomplished first novel...In Hassman's skilled hands, what could have been an unrelenting chronicle of desolation becomes a lovely tribute to the soaring, defiant spirit of a survivor." --People

"Moments of strange beauty enhance our sense of the Calle community....[Hassman] makes Rory's milieu feel universal." --Megan Mayhew Bergman, The New York Times Book Review

"Powerful...Rory transcends her bleak situation through dark humor and unaccountable smarts." --San Francisco Chronicle

"This amazing debut spills over with love, but is still absolutely unflinching and real." --Aimee Bender, author of The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake
