"Fitzpatrick's excellent first novel movingly captures the intensity of first love [and] the corrupting forces of power....As the lines between villains and heroes shift, readers will be reminded how "right" and "wrong" choices are rarely crystal clear."
(Publishers Weekly (starred review))
"Samantha and Jase have chemistry that crackles: it's the novel's tender, awkward, sexy, dizzy-happy portrayal of first love that really makes it soar."
"The characters are dynamic and realistic. Strong narrative pacing adds to the whole sun-kissed package, which is on par with authors such as Sarah Dessen and Deb Caletti."
(School Library Journal)
"An almost perfect summer romance...[that] will have every girl who reads the novel wishing for a Jase of her own."
"Fitzpatrick perfectly captures the heady joys of first love while still dealing with everyday realities"
"Jase and Samantha have a heart-warming romance every girl will envy."
(Simone Elkeles, New York Times bestselling author of the Perfect Chemistry serie)
