--PW
"The elegant, poignant story is written primarily in present tense, giving the novel a cinematic effect and intensifying Hadley's roller-coaster emotions over the twenty-four-hour period. Hadley is a determined, thoughtful protagonist who, given little bits of luck, isn't afraid to create her own destiny. She anchors this bittersweet-mostly sweet-consideration of loss, marriage, fate, and love."
--The Horn Book
