Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up—In her engaging debut, Taylor skillfully captures adolescent depression and anxiety. Reggie, 17, feels alienated from her religious family after enduring several serious losses. Feeling emotionally abandoned, she is determined never to be hurt again. While picking up her Zoloft prescription, Reggie meets fellow teen Snake, who is in line for his Prozac. At first she is extremely resistant to Snake's attention, but he pursues her relentlessly. She eventually succumbs to his charms, but that's only the beginning of a very complicated relationship. Reggie's queen bee classmate Carla is pregnant, and Snake, it turns out, is the father. The three teens' tenuous connections periodically strain, break, and heal as they realistically stumble their way toward a sort of friendship and, ultimately, happiness. The main characters are well drawn and unique. The secondary characters are less so, but this doesn't lower the overall quality of this novel's insightful portrayal of complex teens struggling with mental health issues. VERDICT An emotionally engrossing and powerful exploration of depression and healing that many teens will find meaningful. A strong choice for libraries serving teens.—Susan Riley, Mamaroneck Public Library, NY

Review

"...Offbeat romance, sarcastic humor, and the philosophy of life come together in a flying bildungsroman that is both touching and entertaining in its exploration of the internal conflicts of the human condition. With plain but evocative prose and a pair of ceaselessly endearing protagonists, Definitions of Indefinable Things is perfect for readers of middle school age and above." –VOYA

"Taylor portrays depression with complexity in this authentic, often confrontational debut..."
–Publishers Weekly

"An emotionally engrossing and powerful exploration of depression and healing that many teens will find meaningful."
