Product Details


Egg’s stripped-down, laser-like observations are funny, moving, and at times poetic, creating a fresh voice that will be immediately appealing to readers. This is an affirming story about a girl waking up to her true potential.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review)

Castellucci effortlessly paints a picture of Hollywood as a setting that shapes her characters as much as they shape it. Egg’s journey to shed her trappings and to confidently inhabit her own character is one readers won’t want to miss.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

This novel’s clipped, funny, first-person, present-tense narrative will grab teens with its romance and the screwball special effects, and with the story of an outsider’s struggle both to belong and to be true to herself.

An unusual, successful, appealing effort from first-time novelist Castellucci.
—Kirkus Reviews

With a cover that has teen appeal, this quick, fun read is sure to please the romantic geeks of the world.

It’s satisfying to see [Egg] finally reciprocate other people’s feelings and concerns for her and realize that being true to herself doesn’t mean she has to go it alone.
—The Horn Book
