Praise for The Lonely Ones:

* “Spare and poignant, every word of this haunting and elegant novel in verse feels painstakingly selected….Fain’s story is simply a brilliantly crafted coming-of-age novel that will appeal to the hearts and minds of all readers who have ever felt alone.”Kirkus Reviews, *STARRED REVIEW*

“The lyrical free verse style moves the narrative swiftly along….Gorgeous writing distinguishes this short, but not shallow, read.”School Library Journal

“This novel in free verse is exactly what a poetic novel should be…an immersive novel, like any good tale in which readers can take any individual poem and examine it in depth for word use, rhythm, and meaning.”—VOYA

“[Readers will] respond to the accessible poetry and concrete symbolism of this verse novel. Finely wrought images and lyrical language evoke the challenges of dealing with unwelcome change and the pain of feeling unseen.”Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
