They currently live in St. Thomas of the US Virgin Islands, where they were born and raised.
"A hilarious and bold love story for the ages."-- "Mason Deaver, bestselling author of I Wish You All the Best"
"Callender proffers complex perspectives on activism, bullying, respectability politics, and polyamory, among other timely topics via a queer, socially conscious cast. Lark's experiences are emotionally fraught but not overwrought, emblematic of a deeply kind soul who is growing and learning from every triumph and mistake."-- "Publishers Weekly"
"The reverence Callender holds for the vulnerability and joy of their characters suffuses the writing with enduring warmth. Recommend Lark and Kasim to everyone, but especially to Black, queer, neurodiverse teens who deserve representation where their identities are accepted and celebrated." -- "The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"

"This is a strongly character-driven novel that will certainly make readers root for Lark, Kasim, and their community and chosen family. It might even make them want to start revolutions of their own."

-- "Booklist"
"References to the COVID-19 pandemic are seamlessly interwoven into everyday life, and frank discussions of topics like autism and ADHD in the Black community, and how to navigate polyamorous relationships, feel fresh and necessary in the YA sphere." -- "The Horn Book Magazine"
"This introspective, character-driven novel tackles thoughts on community, accountability, intersectional identities, mental health, polyamory, online clout, self-worth, and the right to take up space just exactly as you are. Callender's nuanced portrayals of the main characters and their sincere, vulnerable voices provides important representation. Lark and Kasim make plenty of mistakes but also change and grow from them, leading to self-reflection that feels genuine and earned. A heartfelt and thoughtful look at a fractured friendship and the transformative capability of love and compassion."-- "School Library Journal"
