Reviews

"Knisley's personal journey can be compelling and quite funny... But the book, with its jaunty colors and friendly black art, works best as an extended public service announcement. The pages breathe easily, cleverly composed and uncluttered."--The New York Times

"Knisley's nuanced look at pregnancy and her message of bodily autonomy will resonate with teens, especially those who appreciated the graphic anthology Mine!" -School Library Journal

"Lucy Knisley has a well-earned reputation for emotionally evocative, introspective, and intimate autobiographical work... Her art has become more refined and ambitious, eliciting specific feelings and reactions alongside telling a true story." --The A.V. Club

"In sharing her journey's bumps and switchbacks, Knisley assures that there's no perfect pregnancy story and that even a lot of strife won't dim the joy of a child's ecstatic arrival." --Booklist, starred review
