About the Author

Paula Garner spends most of her time writing, reading, or making good things to eat. Her debut YA novel, Phantom Limbs, was a 2017 Illinois Reads selection. She lives in the Chicago area with her family and a very bad cat.

Reviews

Garner (Phantom Limbs) weaves a complex story, with Jules gaining her foster family back only to risk losing them again: her former foster mother is dying of cancer. Garner sensitively explores the tensions that can arise between close friends, but she allows questions of what makes a family to remain the heart of Jules's story.
--Publishers Weekly

Jules' hard-won insights into what families can give us and what we must find and create on our own make for a moving read.
--Kirkus Reviews

This is a fast-paced, captivating novel from beginning to end. Readers won't be able to put this book down. A must-have for YA shelves.
--School Library Journal

Garner's (Phantom Limbs, 2016) novel clearly illustrates the way one's world can turn inside out in a heartbeat, cautioning readers to be careful what they wish for. Changing friendships, the need for validation, and the desire to be whole will strike a chord with readers who feel a part of their lives is missing.
