Reviews

"This lively middle-grade read offers a spirited exploration of the strength required to know and stay true to oneself in adolescence." -- Booklist

"Snyder leans into the tween's candid, fourth-wall-breaking narration to interrogate interpersonal difficulties and mysteries of faith, resulting in an evolving portrait of a nearly 13-year-old growing up before her own eyes." -- Publishers Weekly

"Zippy's awkwardness, from her fights with her best friend to the way she dabbles in both Judaism and witchcraft, is painfully, believably genuine. And as the rabbi teaches her, her struggles with Judaism and her attempts to make it fit into her witchiness are exemplars of Jewish learning." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Compelling from the first page. There's much to ponder here in friendship, family dynamics, and religion, and Zippy's growth is hard-earned and deserved." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
