“White captures a small rural community in the mid-1950s that is peopled with likable, memorable characters.” ―School Library Journal
“...this heartwarming story has more than a touch of wonder. Expanding one's emotional life, the work of teens, is beautifully captured here, and Garnet's hard-won success will reach across the decades to today's readers.” ―Booklist Starred Review

This story is set in the fifties. The author conveys everyday life realistically. I know because I had just graduated from college at that time. The characters are true-to-life and their relationships unfold in believable ways. The plot does not dawdle.
Middle readers will race through the book (not hard to do) in hopes things will turn out pleasant for Garnet. By the time the story ends, Garnet has matured considerably. It's a good thing because of what happens before the reader gets to the final page. This is not a tale where “they live happily ever after.”
This book has lots of themes such as first loves, family, loss, and religion. It's a great story but be warned: It does not have such a happy ending!
