“In a rather impressive feat, Leavitt manages to take a painful family crisis and make one girl's reaction to it genuinely guffaw-worthy, even adding a bit of romance for kicks. With her self-deprecating wit and nearly OCD organizational skills, Payton is positively endearing. Leavitt capably handles the issues of chronic illness with sensitivity, making this an insightful, humorous, and ultimately uplifting family drama.” ―BCCB
“Payton is likable and the writing brisk and amusing…Complex, significant issues are raised.” ―Kirkus Reviews
“A balanced proportion of comedy and gravity... refreshing and realistic without being overwrought with angst.” ―School Library Journal
“Leavitt tucks in lines like 'I don't do spandex. The devil wears spandex. And I doubt the devil's butt is as big as mine' while bringing her protagonist around to acceptance and repaired relationships... the formula is tried-and-true.” ―Booklist

This is a cute story. There are some really great things about it. One is that Payton the main character is 15 and acts like she is 15 not twenty-something. Read morePublished on November 25, 2013 by Robin Snyder
