Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[A] provocative coming-of-age story.” Publishers Weekly
“[A] terrific debut novel…Rich with details of life in contemporary Iran, this is a GLBTQ story that we haven’t seen before in YA fiction. Highly recommended.” School Library Journal
“Accomplished and compassionate…A groundbreaking, powerful depiction of gay and transsexual life in Iran…An intimate look at life in modern-day Iran and its surprising Westernization, even though much of this culture is clandestine.” Booklist (starred review)
“Refreshingly and believably diverse…A moving and elegant story.” Kirkus Reviews
“A heartbreakingly beautiful story of first love…The reader becomes part of Sahar and Nasrin’s journey. We move through it with them with our heart in our hands.” Jacqueline Woodson, author of Beneath a Meth Moon
