“Gephart clearly has a lot of heart, and she tells their stories with compassion.” —Kirkus

“A thoughtfully and sensitively written work of character-driven fiction that dramatically addresses two important subjects that deserve more widespread attention.” —Booklist, starred review

“Gephart sympathetically contrasts the physical awkwardness, uncertainty, and longings of these two outsiders during a few tightly-plotted months, building to a crescendo of revelation…[A] valuable portrait of two teenagers whose journeys are just beginning.” —PW

“Gephart has written a story that will speak not just to one specific community, but to humanity as a whole… This would be a fantastic addition to any middle grade library collection, and is highly recommended for all ages.” —VOYA
“Lily and Dunkin is a delight. Here’s a book for anyone who’s ever struggled with being different–or anyone who’s ever loved someone who bears the burden of difference. . . . Crucial, heart-breaking, and inspiring.” —Jennifer Finney Boylan, author of She’s Not There and Stuck in the Middle with You
