"Narrator Ellen learns about love, family and 'society's unwritten rules' in this sophisticated but gentle novel." --Publishers Weekly, Starred "A tightly constructed novel about love, family, and the ambiguities of sexual identity." --School Library Journal, Starred "Freyman-Weyr writes an astonishing combination of delicacy and clarity of the genuine complexity of family (and all) relationships." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, Starred "Freymann-Weyr sets up a riveting love triangle. As in the author's first novel, When I Was Older, one of the standout qualities is the protagonist's fresh, vital tone." --Horn Book, Starred "The fast, clipped dialog will sweep teens into the story, as will Ellen's immediate first-person, present-tense narrative, 'curious, careful, kind, and intense.' The family dynamics are just as compelling as the love and friendship drama, especially Ellen's bewilderment about the unwritten laws that can make people strangers even within the family they love." --Booklist, ALA, Starred Review " will engage teen readers to the very last page." --Kirkus Reviews
