Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Zhang does a wonderful job of creating characters…She creates a plot line that will be believable among most teens about secrets that are and are not shared. This will make a great pairing with Laurie Halse Anderson’s Speak.” VOYA (starred review)
“Zhang’s effortless exploration of the complex intersection of memory and perception and intricate, menace-laden plot is a perfect fit for fans of E. Lockhart’s compelling We Were Liars.” Booklist (starred review)
“Zhang’s subject and tone recall books like Paper Towns and Thirteen Reasons Why.” Publishers Weekly
“Zhang weaves a dark, complicated tale, steeped in obsession, painful secrets, and mind-numbing vodka. Readers will be left to decide for themselves whether this is a tragic love story or a psychological thriller; regardless, this is most definitely a novel that will have fans talking.” Kirkus Reviews
“Michael Crouch wistfully expresses Micah’s longing for and lyrical memories of Janie Vivian, his best friend since childhood…In contrast to Crouch’s subdued tones, Bolding’s narration brims with passion, sassiness, and, later, fury for a terrible hurt she keeps hidden. Her emotional highs and lows make sense for the pain she feels and inflicts on Micah. The alternating first-person narratives give excellent perspectives of both protagonists, and their contrasts give dimension to both characters and their powerful secret relationship.” AudioFile
