Reviews

"Fantastic . . . The story's unexpected turns will keep readers rapt, and Lucy's voice--reserved, blunt, sarcastic--feels as bone true as that of any YA character in recent memory."
--The New York Times Book Review

"McCarthy sensitively explores the difficult process of learning to accept loved ones despite their shortcomings."
--Publishers Weekly

"A poignant, character-driven coming-of-age novel."
--Kirkus Reviews

"This is a moving coming-of-age story for young adults who enjoy calm, character-driven reading. It is also a title that should be flying off the shelves."
