Praise

★ ”A stunning work that deeply explores poetry, the complexities of identity, and the longing for love.”—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

★ ”A mesmerizing verse novel and a gripping exploration of the hyper-policing of Black girls’ bodies and sexuality.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

★ ”Elhillo has created more than a cautionary tale. Much like the tale of Persephone’s abduction, she has crafted a story that contains misery, but at its very core, harbors hope.” —Booklist, starred review

“Elhillo creates a realistic picture of a teenage girl trying to push against unfair perceptions. Readers will appreciate the believable portrayal of a teen who is dealing with complex issues of family, friendship, and romantic love.” —The Horn Book

An achingly gorgeous novel in verse that explodes with emotion and heart.”—Kim Johnson, bestselling author of This is My America and Invisible Son.  

Crackles with energy…In a word, gorgeous.”—Samira Ahmed, New York Times bestselling author of Internment and Hollow Fires.
