Reviews

Praise for Local Girls
Named by School Library Journal as one of the
Top Five Adult Fiction Books for Young Adults

"Moving and illuminative...a fine piece of literary magic."--USA Today

"Moving and deadpan funny...Epiphanies about passion, pain, and resiliency induce smiles and shivers in equal measure."--Entertainment Weekly

"Wonderfully sly and unforgettable scenes...Hoffman gets it just right."--The Boston Globe

"Disarming wit...she balances the down-to-earth and the ethereal, and indicates that the human spirit can survive despite the cruel workings of fate."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Hoffman evokes the intimacy of close attachments--mother, brother, aunt, friend, neighbor, classmate--with tender humor and deceptively simple language."--Richmond Times-Dispatch
