Product Details


“Timely…provocative….[Mitchard’s] distinctive voice is strong throughout and includes ironic and even funny observations about the human condition in the face of tragedy….[Her] latest will not disappoint.”
Washington Post Book World
“A compelling, Jodi Picoult-like story.”
USA Today

“Mitchard’s latest ought to come with a warning: make no immediate plans, because this book will take over your life….It is impossible not to root for [Sicily Coyne]…[as] she is both delightfully and excruciatingly fast-tracked through life experiences guaranteed to have readers alternately loving and hating but never forgetting this remarkable heroine….A high-profile novel destined to galvanize fans and new readers alike.
