Reviews

"Processing her feelings through music empowers Ava and gives her a new understanding of home and the connections she shares with others. Raw and powerful, this free verse novel honestly explores issues of identity, culture, grief, and hope... Rich, layered, and heart-rending."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"Farid's poetry rides the page like a wave, charting the ups and downs of Ava's emotions. . .The verse format makes this text extremely accessible, and readers will be delighted to find elements of Ava's Persian heritage and 1980s childhood also woven throughout." -- "School Library Journal"
"Farid brings her expertise as an MD to Ava's story, simplifying the complexity of lymphoma while packing an emotional punch with the musical references that Ava uses to cope." -- "Booklist"
"Farid's word choices are often as meaningful as their design: Water bubbles 'tumble tumble / rumble' onomatopoetically, and careful readers will appreciate the many different appearances and articulations of the titular 'wave.'"-- "BookPage"
