Review

*"A painful story smartly told, Benjamin's first solo novel has appeal well beyond a middle school audience."
Kirkus Reviews, starred review

*"Reminiscent of works by Jennifer L. Holm and Sharon Creech, Benjamin's novel is a shining example of the highs and lows of early adolescence."―Publishers Weekly, starred review
