Reviews

Told from Hank's articulate, insightful, and pretty funny perspective, the chapters are punctuated by journal entries from Zoe (brief, chuckleworthy musings on recovery and double-crosses written from rehab) . . . Though Hank doesn't see herself as captivating as Zoe, she doesn't delve into pitiful self-deprecation (she knows she's smart, loyal, and a talented musician)--a narrative choice that makes her eventual confrontation of Zoe believable. Here's how to speak up even if it hurts. --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

The unbalanced friendship will resonate with readers, many of whom might recognize the toxicity of the dynamic. Through Hank's story, Sher shows a way out of damaging friendships. --Booklist

The novel--written in a snappy, accessible style that lightens the subject matter without trivializing it--focuses on Hank and the effect Zoe has on her. --Horn Book
