Praise

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, April 25, 2011:
“Hubbard has a superb handle on her boarding school setting…A powerful, ambitious debut.”

Starred Review, School Library Journal, June 2011:
“The story builds to a climax that will have readers on edge. It could be read alongside many of the classics that deal with friendship and loyalty, as well as deceit…Those who are looking for something to ponder will enjoy this compelling read.”

Starred Review, The Horn Book Magazine, July/August 2011:
“Hubbard’s characters are confounding and intriguing…The traditional, buttoned-up boarding school setting makes the perfect backdrop to this tense dictation of secrets, lies, manipulation, and the ambiguity of honor.”

Starred Review, Booklist, July 1, 2011:
“Both plotting and characters are thoroughly crafted in this stellar first novel. The poetry that Hubbard produces from Alex’s pen is brilliant, and the prose throughout is elegant in its simplicity. Reminiscent of John Knowles’ classic coming-of-age story, A Separate Peace (1959), this novel introduces Hubbard as a bright light to watch on the YA literary scene.”
