Reviews

"Simple and captivating. It is [the characters'] voices--at once utterly credible and heartbreakingly naïve--that make the book." --Publishers Weekly "A sweet tale openly modeled on West Side Story . . . centering on how people come to grip with their pasts." --Kirkus Reviews"A reimagining of the classic tale of star-crossed lovers . . . but fresh and new. . . . A page-turning read. . . . The distinct voices are sweet, soul-baring, and honest. Hyde writes evocatively of the visceral nature of first love." --School Library Journal
