Product Details

Praise

The book proceeds, each new character entering, with his/her realities, dreams and secrets becoming another masterfully woven thread. With emotional explorations and dialogue so authentic, one might think Knowles isn’t creating but channeling the adolescent mind. A fascinating study of misperceptions, consequences and the teen condition.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Achingly truthful… The short story format could tempt reluctant readers, and many young adults will see shadows of themselves in the well-drawn characters. Hand this one to fans of dramatic realistic fiction and those who enjoy slice-of-life novels.
—School Library Journal

The idea of looking past an angry gesture to understand what led to it makes for an empathetic approach to understanding random hostility. Teens who read these stories will likely never see a raised middle finger again without wondering what the story is behind it
—Publishers Weekly

Each (story) can be read and appreciated in isolation, but readers will enjoy piecing together the stories and the accompanying relationships.
—BookPage

This is likely to speak to any teenager (or adult) in a stage of transition
—Booklist

The stories are all skillfully written … may cause readers to think twice about the sentiment behind that sign.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

This is a poignant read that will leave readers thinking.
—School library Connection

These interconnected stories create a powerful, complex whole.
—The Horn Book
