"Readers new and old to Levine's world will find much to love."--Booklist
"Levine does an excellent job of getting into the mind of an ogre (Evie is overwhelmed by a sudden aversion to vegetables in all forms), and although the plot's many strands are wide-ranging, she brings them together for a satisfying resolution."--The Horn Book
"Like all of Levine's heroines, Evie is complex, career-oriented, and likable as she bears up under seriously extraordinary pressures. With enough grotesqueries to satisfy the most transgressive tastes of juvenile humor and enough light romance to balance the scales, this trips lightly over a wide range of emotional appeals."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Levine offers another engaging story and heroine readers will adore. Evie is strong, independent, and smart, discovering herself and her own definition of love through experience and reflection... Plot and pacing will engage voracious and reluctant readers alike."--School Library Journal
