She refuses to oversimplify, allowing readers access to the girls' homes as well as school, making it clear that their inner lives are as complicated as their readers'. Secondary characters, especially the girls' parents, are likewise given satisfying emotional complexity.... readers leave Kate and Marylin poised between childhood and adulthood--they are not finished, but they are on their way.-- "Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW"
