Praise for Local Girls
Named by School Library Journal as one of the
Top Five Adult Fiction Books for Young Adults

“Moving and illuminative…a fine piece of literary magic.”—USA Today

“Moving and deadpan funny…Epiphanies about passion, pain, and resiliency induce smiles and shivers in equal measure.”—Entertainment Weekly

“Wonderfully sly and unforgettable scenes…Hoffman gets it just right.”—The Boston Globe

“Disarming wit…she balances the down-to-earth and the ethereal, and indicates that the human spirit can survive despite the cruel workings of fate.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Hoffman evokes the intimacy of close attachments—mother, brother, aunt, friend, neighbor, classmate—with tender humor and deceptively simple language.”—Richmond Times-Dispatch
