Praise

WINNER – 2012 Rocky Mountain Book Award

“Nielsen (Word Nerd) has created a narrator as sassy and candid as this memorable novel’s title…. Nielsen skillfully balances her story’s keen humor…with poignancy. Especially affecting are Violet’s struggles to accept her father’s new family….”
—Starred Review, Publishers Weekly

“Laugh-out-loud humor deftly mixes with insight into a troubled girl’s pain over her parents’ divorce…. Nielsen has real talent for comedy, zoning in on just the right level of snark…. This comic novel scores.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“…Violet is a complex, appealing character whose intimate, lively first-person narrative, both droll and heartfelt, discusses classmate conflicts and crushes as well as her insecurities and her gradual acceptance of what she can and cannot control. Violet’s growth and authentic range of emotions … ring true in this very engaging read.”
—Booklist

  “This vacation-friendly paperback is perfect for carry-ons, road trips or wherever the summer takes your teen. Violet, a seventh-grader from Vancouver, attacks life and its many adventures with humour and spunk. In the midst of coping with her cheating dad and his new family, she and her sister sabotage their mom’s new dating life in order to help her find the perfect man. Teens will love Violet’s sarcasm, charm, antics and wit.”
—Canadian Family
