"The characters here are effectively nuanced, flawed but forgivable as they muddle through teenage conundrums of loyalty and love."

"All of the protagonists . . .are pushed to ask themselves what expectations other people have of them and whether or not they have accepted these as their own. In the end, Maggie and the others become fully realized characters whose actions cannot be predicted by a YA lit algorithm."
--School Library Journal

"A powerful tale with an emotional rawness that will resonate with readers."

"Dinnison adeptly portrays the rising and falling hopes within an unconventional love triangle. . . . Readers will follow [Maggie] eagerly as she finds her voice and identity."
--Publishers Weekly

"Fans of realistic fiction featuring friendship, loyalty, and trust will enjoy this book."--VOYA

"Firmly at the center stands a protagonist whose likable voice and authentic struggle to accept herself and find love in a world that would rather she shrink back--not to mention her crackling chemistry with Tom--lend this fresh, contemporary romantic comedy considerable appeal."
--Horn Book Magazine
