Reviews

"McNamara's lyrical novel poignantly explores the damange wrought by codependent friendships. With pages teeming with evocative, figurative language and a moving focus on self-discovery, this will appeal to fans of character-driven stories about emotional growth." -- ALA Booklist

"Lacerating authenticity. Distressingly plausible. There's a whiff of Fine's amazing The Tulip Touch here in the friendship that's gone too far." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"This is life as it truly is, messy and complicated, for which McNamara presents a perfectly compatible narrative." -- Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)

"Thoughtfully constructed. McNamara gives readers a story of friendship and learning when it's time to let go." -- Publishers Weekly
