Review

"This isn't a book only about ugliness and trauma... Mack's novel is an enjoyable tale that transforms ugly duckling Matty--initially in self-imposed exile... into a swan. Readers will root for sympathetic, wryly Matty... Uplifting... full of heart and hope and featuring an appealing heroine and trauma survivor." - Kirkus Review

"Lia Mack writes a beautifully eloquent painting of a life, complete with trauma that makes you cringe and hopes and wishes that break your heart. Lia reminds us that we paint the picture of our lives and even if it started dark, we can frame it with a happy ending." -- Award-winning writer/director Angela Shelton

"Lia Mack has written a raw and wrenching novel about rape, ongoing sexual coercion and the soul-crushing aftermath of such trauma. Watching Matty Bell move from shut-down victim to triumphant survivor is a stirring experience; Mack knows all the right notes to hit. An inspiring and powerful tale." -- Yona Zeldis McDonough, author of You Were Meant for Me 

"Lia Mack's fiercely intimate Waiting For Paint To Dry portrays mental anguish so intense, it's visceral. From the reader's front row seat in this autobiographical novel, we witness heroine Matty Bell coming to terms with a past haunted by sexual abuse and family dysfunction. Meanwhile, she's learning to use humor to battle the stubborn paranoia in her present. This blistering psychological powerhouse of a love story will make you get up and cheer the glory of self-reinvention." -- Mindela Ruby, author of Mosh It Up
