Starred Review, Booklist, June 1, 2008:
“Unconventionality is Horvath’s stock and trade, but here the high quirkiness quotient rests easily against Jane’s inner story with its honest, childlike core.”
Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, July 15, 2008:
"[A] witty, wise and wonderful novel."
Review, Parenting Magazine, September 2008:
"[T]his tale’s full of sweetly memorable moments."
Starred Review, School Library Journal, September 2008:
"This is Horvath’s most luminescent, beautifully written novel yet."
Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, August 25, 2008:
"[T]his quietly captivating novel marks a new course for National Book Award-winner Horvath."
