Reviews

Praise for Jackpot

"Hard-to-put-down, enjoyable read." --Booklist

"Smart, humorous and hopeful." --Shelf Awareness

"Stone delivers a thoughtful and polished novel about class, privilege, and relative poverty." --Kirkus Reviews

"A deftly constructed tale that is equal parts satisfying wish-fulfillment and light-handed lessons learned.... This is a real winner." --SLJ

"By turns romantic, funny, and surprising, the story explores how class, status, and money--or lack thereof--have the ability to limit or expand life opportunities, the choices we make, and our universal need for love and connection." --The Horn Book

Praise for Odd One Out:

"Fans of Nic and new readers will find themselves engrossed." --Teen Vogue

"Declaring yourself--how you would like to be represented and whom you want to love and connect with--is treated with real tenderness." --The New York Times

"For fans of authors who dig complex relationships, like Shannon M. Parker, Ashley Woodfolk and Misa Sugiura." --Paste Magazine

"Essential reading." --Booklist, starred review

"Filled with rich character development, whip-smart dialogue, and a layered exploration of financial precariousness... Stone delivers a thoughtful and polished novel about class, privilege, and relative poverty." --Kirkus Reviews

"An important and necessary love story." -SLJ

"Stone challenges stereotypical notions of what it means to be straight, bisexual, or gay, showing how sexual identities and desires can be as complicated as the individual human brain." -PW
