“Lovely” —The Los Angeles Times

“Stunning. Kephart’s lyrical prose lingers with you long after the final page. I simply didn’t want it to end.”—Ruta Sepetys, author of the New York Times bestseller Between Shades of Gray

“As this delicate and luscious novel unfolds, the lines are blurred between love and loss, past and present, real and magical, and even life and death.”—Kathryn Erskine, author of National Book Award winner Mockingbird

“‘Dreamlike’ is one word for Small Damages…[Kenzie’s] percolating story emerges through Kephart’s lilting prose in the same hazy way you’d meander through the narrow white streets of Seville…The novel is a story about choices…but also about finding one’s self.” —New York Times Book Review

“ Kephart is a linguistic Midas — everything she puts to paper is golden, including this gem.” —Family Circle

“[Kephart’s] prose is nearly poetic… it all works to create her own vivid style.” —Romantic Times Book Reviews

"This beautifully written ‘summer of transformation’ story will have readers feeling as torn about Kenzie’s choice as she is.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Lovely and unusual—at once epic and intimate.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“A magical story.” —VOYA

“Beautifully told, the characters’ stories are soulful and compelling, and the setting is rich and alive.” —SLJ

“Kephart has created a lyrical, beautiful story about a young woman at a turning point, struggling to reconcile her choices, find her place in the world and discover the true meaning of family.” —BookPage

“As soon as the book ends, we want to begin it again.” —Shelf Awareness
