Reviews

* "Buoyant, with interesting plot developments, layered characters, humorous moments, and a healthy dose of marine science. . . Adoration for Jane Austen and a matchmaking scheme worthy of Emma Woodhouse add an extra dash of heart to this wonderfully told tale."--Booklist, starred review

* "Fans of Going will love her latest book, and new fans will emerge with a new favorite. Going has created another original and captivating story by weaving engaging characters in an ordinary setting who do incredible and impossible things. An inspirational must-have for every library."--School Library Journal, starred review

"Going succeeds with witty banter and young small-town characters that are both sophisticated and accessible. . . . This humorous tale is led by a young writer who is, like Jane Austen, quite determined."--Kirkus Reviews

"Lively romantic comedy with timely discussions of natural science and climate change, as well as advice on what it takes to become a successful author."--Publishers Weekly
