Reviews

**STARRED REVIEW** "Hopkins creates a satisfying and moving story, and her carefully structured poems ensure that each word and phrase is savored."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
"With trademark compassion, multidimensional characters, realistic teen behavior, and a slew of issues sympathetically explored, Hopkins has another winner here."--Booklist
"A powerful, memorable and honest look at how two girls navigate their troubled home lives. Ellen Hopkins once again reminds us why she's in a class all to herself--the gorgeous prose, the painfully authentic characters and their struggle to find where to fit in and how to be loved. No surprise . . . this book is beautiful and unforgettable!"--Justine Magazine
"Maya and Ariel's connection is among Hopkins' best. A page-turning exploration of independence, powerlessness, and secrets, with groundbreaking representation of bisexuality and queerness."--Kirkus Reviews
"Writing in verse (Ariel's tale) and prose (Maya's), Hopkins uses skillful pacing and carefully chosen words to conceal the most important truth of the novel. The reveal arrives just as readers may be putting the pieces together themselves. VERDICT A sharp, gripping read sure to please Hopkins's legions of fans."--SLJ
**STARRED REVIEW** "Delving into issues of teen pregnancy, scientology, bisexuality, same-sex marriage, family, and determination, this book is as substantial as it is beautifully written. Hopkins's fans will love the newest edition to her published works, a must for contemporary young adult collections."--VOYA, starred revew
