"By the time [you read] the first five pages, Dorothy Bryant's novel about a woman who discovers herself has you in its grip. . . . As Ella grows, the pace of the novel quickens. You go alongnot for any joy ride, but because the trip is worth it." Dallas Times-Herald
"The journal Ella keeps to fulfill an English class assignment is a minor masterpiece of eloquent innocence. . . . A poignant, credible, extremely appealing book." Christian Science Monitor
"A fresh and engaging novel . . . [with] sharply observed nuances of personality and a leavening pitch of irony." The New York Times Book Review
