Reviews

"Booklist," starred review

The poetic, spare language, written in Kay's self-possessed, first-person

voice, is refreshingly frank....Like Virginia Euwer Wolff's free-verse novels, Grover's book balances vivid emotional scenes with plenty of space between the words.

"Publishers Weekly" [A] hard-hitting debut novel....Any reader who has faced cancer, death or just struggled to define his or her own truth will respond to this memorable heroine and the novel's themes of loss, survival and remembrance.
