"There's an abundance of humour both subtle and overt, and a shattering of stereotypes and tropes. . . . This is a book that grabs readers by the heart and the head." --Starred Review, Quill & Quire "Although Bun is 14, she possesses the endearing naivete and honesty of a child, but her first-person narration isn't sappy or immature. . . . Bun O'Keefe will settle comfortably at home in readers' hearts." --Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews "Heather Smith's second novel burns with nostalgia, wonder and sadness... a quietly profound, starkly Canadian account of being unwanted by family and society." --Globe and Mail "Teens will truly dive into Bun's mind and her surroundings through her understanding of the world... A nuanced, well-done novel about tough topics that deserves a place in most collections." --School Library Journal "Smith's strength is her attention to setting details and character development. . . . Recommended." --CM: Canadian Review of Materials
