Praise

“There is magic, power, and mystery in the novel, without anyone ever waving a wand.”
—San Francisco Chronicle
 
“A beautifully crafted tale that seems, like its protagonist, both enduringly old and fluently new.”
—Los Angeles Times
 
“This whole novel is built on a surprise. . . . Beyond the surprise lies the beauty of what it means to live without junk in your life, only essential beauty, together with the reminder that all of it—the junk and the beauty—will be gone in a twinkling. This is a lovely book.”
—The Washington Post
 
“A richly patterned work about secrets and how an innocent crush can utterly change everything.”
—People magazine (four stars)
 
“[Rosoff’s] portrayal of adolescent awakening is intimate and thoroughly persuasive.”
—The Boston Globe
