Praise

“A PERCEPTIVE, quietly powerful piece about friendship. Nat, Lise and Sofe are in their last year of high school, with exams and decisions looming large. . . . Burton paints settings, characters and relationships with a sweet and poignant freshness.”–Kirkus Reviews

“Burton does an effective job of weaving the symptoms and personality characteristics of anorexia into an absorbing story about the tug and pull of old friendships as a teen’s world expands. An afterword about anorexia concludes this well-written, never-didactic novel.”–Booklist

“Burton skillfully captures universal doubts and insecurities that are a part of growing up as both girls struggle with obsessions. . . . Although psychologically intense, the book remains optimistic, hinting in the end that the girls will overcome their obstacles even as they choose different paths.”–Publishers Weekly

“Avoid the temptation of classifying this simply as an “anorexia” book; it’s much more.”–School Library Journal
