Reviews

"[A] stunning novel. . . . two unlikely friends soon learn what it means to 'stick together.' Blecher has a clear gift for writing about young girls who live on social margins, and the particular struggle of wanting to belong while staying faithful to one's self. Izzy and Wren are relatable heroines with flaws, impulses, and dreams that will resonate with young readers. . . . A smart and emotionally honest book that lays bare the complexities of friendship and of growing up." -- School Library Journal (starred review)

"Two girls navigate the slippery ice of tween friendship. . . . The girls' stories are told in alternating third-person chapters integrated so well- that when the two ultimately intertwine it is both natural and fresh. . . . Wren and Izzy have depth and nuance that give their stories vitality and believability . . . A pleasurable balance of original and satisfying." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Izzy and Wren become unlikely confidantes and discover the power of a supportive friendship. Each protagonist is layered and relatable: anxious Izzy uses her art to navigate her emotions, while Wren regrets her habit of speaking harshly before thinking. In chapters that alternate between the girls' perspectives, Blecher keenly illustrates the agonies and intricacies of tween friendship." -- Publishers Weekly

"[A] pitch-perfect ode to friendship." -- Good Morning America

"The lives of two twelve-year-olds intersect for a brief time, with long-lasting positive effects. . . . Blecher creates two authentic tween characters in quiet, artistic Izzy and tough, determined Wren." -- Horn Book Magazine
