Praise

A Peter Blue Book Award Winner for Best Story of the Year!

“This debut novel from neurodivergent author McNicoll will bring readers to tears and have them cheering for Addie as she learns how much she has to offer the world.” -School Library Journal, Starred Review

“The author, herself neurodivergent, imbues Addie’s unapologetically autistic perspective with compassion and insight.” -Kirkus Reviews

Whether they’re facing similar neurodivergent challenges or not, readers will appreciate Addie’s honesty, and they may follow her lead in reconsidering history.” –The Bulletin

“The writer (autistic herself) busts some myths about neuro-divergency as she presents a flawed, loving, believable family and a convincing, nuanced, and very likable main character with a distinctive voice.” –The Horn Book
