A Junior Library Guild Gold Standard Selection

"A heartfelt, visually stunning coming-of-age story . . . Walden's art, paired with the authors' -lyrical words, create an emotionally resonant reading experience that is sure to mesh with adolescents' big feelings . . . Highly recommended for fans of -Svetlana Chmakova and Molly Knox -Ostertag." --School Library Journal, starred review

"The high and lows of preteens navigating school and life, inspired by the Quin sibling pop duo's actual childhoods . . . Walden's illustrations are, as usual, wonderfully expressive . . . Tugs at the heartstrings like a well-tuned guitar." --Kirkus Reviews

"The latest book from rock's favorite multihyphenate twins . . . Tweendom may be nobody's favorite era, but it's also undeniably formative--a time when swirling questions of identity and purpose and who you want to be as a person start to solidify in real and surprising ways. As young queer girls navigating those rocky shoals and simultaneously beginning to find their voices through music, who better to speak to that moment?" --Entertainment Weekly

"Popular twin-sister musicians Tegan and Sara share a fictionalized tale of their early adolescence in this first book of a planned duology . . . Fans of the duo's work will love this and so will anyone who understands how awkward and important junior high can be." --Booklist

"Timelessly resonant." --Publishers Weekly
