Product Details


Teens will wonder at this unusual, fascinating examination of human intersection.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Candid and alluring.
—Publishers Weekly

A well-crafted coming-of-age story.

Natalie encounters a variety of people with whom she briefly interacts, but who leave an impression on her. Their stories are inserted into the narrative as cameos, and she comes to understand that she can be loved for who she is�and not because she was a girl whose mother did not love her enough to stay. A moving coming-of-age story.
—School Library Journal

This sad but ultimately satisfying journey is well written and interspersed with familiar quotations about love. The simple lesson that Natalie begins to learn�that she must love herself first, before anyone else can love her back�is a lesson for all readers to absorb and understand.

Natalie's navel-gazing is wise, lyrical, and familiar to the point of affirmation; readers will find their own experiences and emotions mirrored and amplified.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

A compelling narrative about the need for understanding and love.
—Confessions of a Bibliovore blog

Nora Raleigh Baskin jumpstarts the drama on page one, propelling the reader through until the very end.

All We Know of Love is an exciting treasure
