“Will grab readers from the first entry.”— Kirkus Reviews

“This is a great book [for] young teens . . . Van Draanen has shown great versatility in adding another dimension to her already respected body of work.” —School Library Journal
“The ending of this taut, powerful story seems possible and deeply hopeful.” —Booklist
“Readers will be drawn to Holly as she shifts between her search for a safe place to live, her anger at the foster care system and her reflections on the circumstances that led up to her mother’s overdose.” — Publishers Weekly
