"Above all else, Things We Know By Heart explores the possibility of finding human connection through tragic loss. Couple that with Kirby's gift for detail and writing relatable characters and you get a not just a love story, but one with a ferocious pulse."--John Corey Whaley, Printz Award-winning author of Where Things Come Back
"This is hands down Jessi Kirby's best book to date. It's stunning and breathtaking, at turns heartbreaking and healing."--Sarah Ockler, author of Twenty Boy Summer
"The love story will hook readers--especially those who enjoyed John Green's The Fault in our Stars. This memorable romance will ring true with teens."--School Library Journal
"Well-rounded characters and the romantic tension of unrevealed secrets."--Kirkus Reviews
"Kirby's story is, at its core, a sweet, budding romance, set against the backdrop of family. [A] story of letting go and moving forward."--Publishers Weekly
"[A] sweet romance that grows organically."
"Kirby's writing is lush and emotional...[A] satisfying romance. Like Ockler's similarly themed and similarly enjoyable Twenty Boy Summer, this brings all the poignancy and sentiment that a genre fan could wish."--BCCB
"Kirby weaves a sweet romance in the same spirit as Susanne Colasanti and Lauren Barnholdt."--Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)
