Reviews

"Tough yet tender, Grit explores new things about the girl everyone thinks they know."--Mindy McGinnis, award-winning author of The Female of the Species
"Touching, funny, and wise, Grit takes you on a journey you'll remember long after turning the last page."--Christina Baker Kline, New York Times bestselling author of Orphan Train
β˜… "Gorgeously written and helmed by a protagonist with an indelibly fierce heart."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
β˜… "Keen plotting, evocative writing, and dynamic characterization make French a writer to watch."--Booklist (starred review)
"Much like Summer's All the Rage and Smith's The Way I Used to Be, this [story] explores the damage of a culture that sees women only in regards to their sexual history and not who they are."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Excellent teen drama. This page-turner will hold the interest of mystery fans. A strong choice for most collections."--School Library Journal
"Lands an effective punch."--Publishers Weekly
"Gripping. Complex but patient plotting and evocative prose elevate this moody coming-of-age novel."--The Horn Book
