Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Carefully nuanced connections between characters plus insight into the adolescent ability to use low self-esteem as a cruel weapon catapults Atkins’s novel of troubled teens well above the familiarity of its trappings. Each of Atkins’s characters emerges, fully formed from these pages.” Publishers Weekly
