One of Bustle’s 8 Best YA Books of December 2016
“It is a great read for teens, especially girls, and a strong candidate for cross-generation discussion.” —VOYA
“Now that the title has captured our attention, I have even better news: No, this book isn't a history lesson about a president. Much more wonderfully, it centers on teenager Zander Osborne, who meets a boy named Grover Cleveland at a camp for at-risk youth. Together, the two and other kids who face bipolar disorder, anorexia, pathological lying, schizophrenia, and other obstacles use their group therapy sessions to break down and build themselves back up. And as Zander gets closer to Grover, she wonders if happiness is actually a possibility for her after all.” —Bustle
“The true beauty of Crane’s book lies in the way she handles the ugly, painful details of real life, showing the glimmering humanity beneath the façades of even her most troubled characters. As these characterizations deepen, and the sweetly strange romance between the heroine and her hero develops, readers will only be pulled deeper into this addictive, readable journey. Crane shows, with enormous heart and wisdom, how even the unlikeliest of friendships can give us the strength we need to keep on fighting.” —RT Book Reviews (Top Pick)
