Reviews

"A whip-smart and deeply felt story about reclaiming life from the rubble of guilt and trauma, Four Three Two One glows brilliantly with heart, humanity, and hope." -- Brendan Kiely, New York Times bestselling author of All American Boys and Tradition

"This is not a book about a tragedy. This is a book about survivors, and hope, and belief. I wish this book wasn't necessary, but it is. Read it. And then pass it on." -- Kathleen Glasgow New York Times bestselling author of Girl in Pieces

The terrifyingly realistic plot and compelling characters will immediately hook readers' attention. An original and captivating coming-of-age tale of trauma and resilience. -- Kirkus Reviews

"The unhurried development of characters and events make for a satisfying crescendo. [Stevens] writes with depth and emotion. A great choice for most YA shelves." -- School Library Journal

"Stevens has written a compelling examination of survivor's guilt and the stories people construct around senseless tragedy to try to make sense of it, including how damaging those created narratives can be. A gripping story that's both entertaing and deeply moving." -- ALA Booklist

"The longer-term effects of tragedy are compellingly limned here. The emotional trajectory is thoughtfully and sympathetically depicted, reminding readers that survival is a long-term process." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
