Reviews

"...readers will find this fast read thoroughly authentic and enjoyable."
--VOYA

"[Shay's] clever, matter-of-fact voice soars, and readers will find it impossible not to root for her as she learns to accept herself and believe that other people can do the same."
--Booklist

"This funny, heart-wrenching novel celebrates those who don't fit into society's mold and the people who love them as they are. Even if the popular crowd at Shay's school doesn't appreciate her wit, compassion, and courage, readers will."
--Publishers Weekly

"Dynamic story of grief, loyalty, and, finally, some cheerworthy victories."
--Kirkus
