Reviews

"A gorgeous, sad, funny, and wise book about letting go and finding your place in the world. Meg Leder has written a story about a brother and sister that will break your heart and have you whispering 'I got you' long after you've closed the book."--Kathleen Glasgow, New York Times bestselling author of Girl in Pieces
"These lifelike characters are perfectly imperfect in the face of their own challenges....For readers who love and appreciate a good coming-of-age story, a realistic romance, and a novel where every character gets to be a hero."--Kirkus "5/1/18 "
"The anticipation and slow burn of Parker and Finn's relationship is electric. Leder gracefully emphasizes self-reflection, self-care, and the reality of exploring other options after high school. Honest dialogue and vividly rendered characters are the real stars of this absorbing novel that will appeal to fans of Rainbow Rowell."--Booklist
"A poignant and carefully crafted story about growing up with the added complication of cancer. Even when in remission, cancer wrecks havoc on Charlie and his family and friends. A compelling coming-of-age novel sure to appeal to those who love realistic fiction."--School Library Journal "May 1, 2018 "
