"[Moonface] will restore your faith in humanity."--People
"Girl meets boy, girl gets boy, girl gets kidney. . . . Moonface is full of people doing the best they can to take care of each other, and reading it is a rare refresher course in ordinary human kindness."--Marion Winik, author of First Comes Love and The Glen Rock Book of the Dead
"Balcita paints a picture of [her and her husband's] commitment and empathy for each other that is sweet and compelling enough to keep readers engrossed into the wee hours."--USA Today
"A wonderfully composed, moving tale...Whether reflecting on her nomadic postcollege days or her emergency C-section, Balcita balances drama and comedy with finesse."--Publishers Weekly
"Balcita gratefully reiterates how she has been blessed with the healing power of friends and family, who collectively bolstered her faith in love. A heartwarming and inspiring memoir."--Kirkus Reviews
"With her sharp ear for dialogue and unflinching honesty, Balcita offers a sweet story of love and healing."--BookPage
"What makes Balcita's memoir so brightly entertaining is the unequaled sense of humor and perspective with which she and her devoted boyfriend-cum-spouse, Charlie, challenge these health problems. Certainly, Balcita's pitch-perfect prose and intrinsic sense of timing don't hurt either."--Booklist
"[Angela Balcita's] story is a sweet testimony to the power of family, love, perseverance, and hope. And three cheers for her husband, Charlie, a natural comic and all-around great guy."--Julie Metz, New York Times bestselling author of Perfection
