Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, May 23, 2011:
“Laced with mystery and fascinating details about Drew’s chief interests–rats and cheese–this quiet novel invites readers to share in its heroine’s deepest yearnings, changing moods, and difficult realizations. Strong imagery…will stay with readers.”
