Reviews

A Library Journal Writer on the Rise

"Bieker has written a debut that joins Emma Cline's The Girls and R.O. Kwon's The Incendiaries in exploring the uneasy intersection of repressive religious belief and burgeoning sexuality, but Bieker's exploration of the way that poverty and environmental ravishment also add to the subjugation of the female body adds more rich layers to this narrative. It's a lot to juggle, but Lacey May is such a strong narrator, at once deeply insightful and painfully naΓ―ve, that readers will eagerly want to follow all the threads to the breathless conclusion. A dark, deft first novel about the trauma and resilience of both people and the land they inhabit."
―Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Bieker's debut novel is a vivid and cutting exploration of unconditional female love. It observes how mothers shape daughters, biological or otherwise, and how daughters must ultimately learn to mother themselves. Young readers will admire Lacy May's resilience, moxie, and ability to survive in a world she did not choose."
―Booklist (starred review)

"[Lauren] Ezzo gives an emotional performance that captures religiosity and fear in a town with few options for escape. Even when the story becomes extremely dark, listeners will find themselves glued to Ezzo's every word."
