Reviews

"Masterfully wrought...downright hilarious and often hold-your-breath-and-hope-for-the-best suspenseful. The restraint with which Beard deploys moments of tension and humor make each page glimmer."--Samuel Reaves Slaton, O Magazine
"A fierce, funny, brave, and bracingly honest new novel....Every bit as poignant and powerful as The Catcher in the Rye."--Julia Keller, Chicago Tribune
"An exuberant first novel....Beard has a knack for melding the funny and the sad, amplifying small moments into something big."--Susannah Meadows, New York Times
"Epic and profound. These thoughtful, funny, awestruck, slightly peculiar girls are so endearing, so painfully true."--Karen Valby, Entertainment Weekly
"A sure-handed first novel ....It's impossible not to be charmed."--Yvonne Zipp, Washington Post
"A fresh comic voice and a talent for sharp familiarizing place-details."--Sam Sacks, Wall Street Journal
