Reviews

"Perry deftly avoids the probelm-novel label thanks to complex characters and a well-structured plot. Joy's story is very affecting, and her voice is suitably self-effacing without being ostentatious; most readers will be engrossed." Kirkus Reviews, August 1, 2014
"While the subject matter is tough, this realistic title will draw teens in with its believable characters, including the well-written portrayal of the adult protagonists." School Library Journal, September 1, 2014
"Perry's descriptions of Joy's intense turmoil are vivid. . .A moving survival story." Booklist, October 1, 2014
"Perry manages to convey Joy's gradual growth without resorting to pamphlet-speak, but moreover she offers a portrait, rare in YA, of the way compassionate, functional families work and the good effects they can produce." The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, October 2014
"This is moving, horrifying and at times difficult to read, but the timeliness of the story and hopes for Joy to be whole, keep the reader engaged." Library Media Connection, March/April 2015
