Praise for Closer to Nowhere:

“Hopkins creates realistic portrayals of two kids trying to do their best even when it’s not easy.” –Publishers Weekly

“Hopkins’ use of free verse provides a canvas for sure-handed, brush-stroke development of the backstory and plot and emotional investment and identification with the characters. . . Compassionate and compelling.” –Kirkus Reviews

“The queen of gritty YA novels-in-verse enters the realm of middle-grade literature with this story of a family fracturing under myriad pressures yet refusing to be broken . . . Hopkins paints a realistic picture of a family undergoing upheaval and learning to better care for one another.” –Booklist
