Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, June 6, 2011:
"LaFleur (Love, Aubrey) writes with uncommon sensitivity to the fraught period between childhood and the teenage years, when friendships balance on a razor's edge and nothing feels certain. The heart of the story lies in the layered relationships and characters that give the novel its powerful sense of realism."

I enjoyed sharing this story with my daughter who is 9 and doesn't care where she fits. She has her friends and her activities and she just does them. In this way, she relates to Elise. She relates to the 9 year old version of me. She gets mean girls, she gets people with non-traditional family dynamics. Someday she will be 12 and she will have questions just like Elise.
I enjoyed seeing how much Elise's parents loved her in the short amount of time they were able to spend with her. I loved how much love she has around her coming from her Aunt, Uncle, her Dad's best friend, her best friend and his family. To me, this is the true meaning of family. This is our family. I hope a lot of kids read this book as see this family dynamic is healthy and strong. Way to go Suzanne.
