Don't Tell Anyone is a winner in The Kindle Book Review's 2013 Best Indie Books Awards and has earned an IndieBRAG medallion.
"Boris did a fantastic job tackling these tough subjects with tenderness, some humor and believable characters. The characters are all well-developed so that you can see each one's side in the situation and how they came to their beliefs. Liza is very real and likeable. I felt for her, being thrust into the role of caretaker of a woman who didn't treat her all that well. The writing flowed and was well paced. If you are looking for an emotional family drama with depth I highly recommend this book." - Kate Farrell, The Kindle Book Review
[Laurie] Boris has a light touch and a warm, affectionate way of bouncing her characters off one another's foibles. Issues like end-of-life choices, adult sibling rivalry, an elderly mother's acceptance of her gay son's life path, and medical marijuana all influence the plot but are never allowed to overpower the sensation that you're tucked into a comfy chair on a small-town deck, killing a bottle of good local wine with a girlfriend while she spills a tale of love-infused struggle. ...Boris had me crying on the last page" - Anne Pyburn Craig, Chronogram
"Even though this is an extremely sad topic there are a lot of funny undertones that keep this tale one of humor, humility and the real essence of true life.... Having lost both parents to the big "C" made me a bit hesitant to read this story but instead of bringing me down I was really touched in such a beautiful heartfelt way.... not just about how cancer changes a family but a story of relationships that feel deep and real." --Brenda Perlin, author of The Brooklyn & Bo Chronicles
