Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Vida captures the unstable sensation of early adolescent reality, in which outlandish lies can seem weirdly plausible and basic facts totally alien.” New York Times Book Review
“Vida populates her stories with liars, runaways, the reckless…as much a novel of girlhood vulnerability as it is a story fortification and fear.” Los Angeles Review of Books
“[A] dreamy, tricky tale of girlhood, secrets and the shifting sands of truth.” Shelf Awareness
