Editorial Reviews

Review

"Charlotte's feelings of helplessness and anxiety over the situation are compounded by her tenuous relationship with her Russian-immigrant mother, whose distance and reserve are the results of old traumas. Charlotte copes by weaving tales from Russian folklore throughout her story as a way of coming to terms with her own personal struggles...An intriguing element." (Kirkus Reviews 6/15/17)

“Devlin beautifully weaves in Russian folktales, illuminating Charlotte’s complex feelings about her mother. . . . A thought-provoking examination of familial love.” (Booklist July 1st, 2017)

"Devlin writes a compelling story filled with complex characters. . . . A great coming-of-age story [for fans of] Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider, Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn, and Thanks for the Trouble by Tommy Wallach." (School Library Journal August 2017)

“The writing is fluent and stylish, and Charlotte’s engagement with Russian folklore adds depth to her view of her family’s tragedies past and present. The book is insightful about the delicate equilibrium of families; its portrait of Charlotte’s mother, fierce, self-contained and yet dependent, is original and haunting, and Charlotte’s desperate need for her love is beautifully complicated. The parental abduction plot is suspenseful, but it’s the familial struggle that will really strike a chord with readers.” (BCCB September 2017)
