Reviews

"Duyvis capably balances a zippy sci-fi plot that barrels along at a breathless pace with an intriguing look at how one girl in five different worlds could be both the same and different"--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Duyvis' rich, layered character development--grounded in Hazel's raw, first-person perspective--offers an authentic exploration of questioning sexuality and asexuality, what makes us who we are, and what our responsibilities are to ourselves and to others."--Booklist
"This is a fast-paced adventure story with the perfect mix of fantasy and coming-of-age realistic fiction."--School Library Journal
". . .The story offers a provocative, genre-bending look at exploring identity."--Publishers Weekly
"The representation of mental health issues is at times so painfully accurate that the novel becomes difficult to read but at the same time, impossible to put down." --Kirkus Review
