Reviews

"Sneaks up on you with its insight and poignancy." --Entertainment Weekly

"[Choi] has a knack for capturing the frenetic, vibrating voices and perspectives of young people as they enter and navigate the world." --Conde Nast Traveler

* "Insightful and intricately constructed...an appreciably personal-feeling narrative about cultural identity, mental and physical health, and siblinghood's complications." --Publishers Weekly, starred

"What lingers longest is the resonating, multifaceted story of Jayne and June Baek...[Choi's] openness--personally, culturally, geographically--gives her narrative a seamless, insider fluency; her writing is consistently assured, her dialogue nimbly tuned, even her pain potently channeled through Jayne's struggles." --Shelf Awareness Pro

"This poignant story underscores self-sacrifices that prove to be life-sustaining in the name of sisterly love. Intense, raw, textured." --Kirkus Reviews

"Choi pushes the boundaries of young adult fiction." --Booklist
