Editorial Reviews

Review

"May's voice is sometimes humorous, at times heartbreaking, and always authentic. Though foreshadowed, the conclusion brings each disparate piece of this touching novel together for a satisfying end to a taut and believable novel.""-Maria B. Salvadore, formerly at Washington DC Public Library"

"- School Library Journal, April 2011"

"Brimming with emotion and insight into adolescent rage, Galante's prose investigates the impact of loss and the importance of making amends."

-"Publishers Weekly", February 2011

"Galante deftly weaves together the parallel stories of May and her teacher, while demonstrating how it's their work together, like Holling Hoodhood's sessions with Mrs. Baker in "The Wednesday Wars" (2007), that changes them both."

- "KIRKUS, "March 2011
