Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Utterly charming…The kind of tour de force that leaves one breathless.” Boston Globe
“[A] heartfelt story full of wit.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Yee captures the intensity of popularity measured in yearbook pages and the strength of genuine teen melodrama. Smart, funny-but-ruthless teens and self-absorbed, grieving adults prove to be enormously appealing.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“With whipsmart writing, a fast-paced plot, plenty of humor, and just enough mystery to keep readers on edge, this is an emotional journey about breaking free of family, friends, and duty to discover what makes you happy.” Booklist
