Editorial Reviews

Review

“[A] touching glimpse of a young life nearly lost and then redeemed…[A] brief but powerful memoir…A haunting story with a triumphant conclusion.” –Kirkus

“It’s blunt, poignant, and exactly what adults should read in a time when adolescent’s and teen’s voices need to be heard. It doesn’t matter that [Halberstadt's] story is based in her childhood, or that she’s French. This is a story that many people can relate to, and her problems then are just as relevant now.” –Examiner

"This is a big little book that illustrates, elegantly, the preciousness of life and emotions without once falling into greeting-card territory." –Library Journal

Fascinating story about a young girls travel into maturity and the effects her actions have outside her own preoccupations. Quick read, worth a couple of reads to develop ones own thoughts about life as we live it
