Reviews

Semi-Finalist for the PEN/ESPN Award for Literary Sportswriting
the must-read book of 2017 for runners or competitive athletes of all kinds...thoroughly researched, written with sensitivity--Sinead Mulhern, Canadian Running
A compassionate and frank look at depression and the social pressure faced by many college students as seen through the eyes of one young woman.--Kirkus
A poignant study of the converging pressures of mental illness, college athletics and social media.--Carlos Lozada, Washington Post
A provocative and thoughtful look at a student-athlete suicide that rocked the nation--but didn't, until now, actually help inform the nation. A labor of love and prevention by Kate Fagan, and Maddy's family and friends.

--Stephen Fried, best-selling author of Thing of Beauty and with Patrick Kennedy, A Common Struggle
Covering an issue as sensitive as a teen suicide is no easy task and Fagan's compassion and desire to prevent more students from following Holleran's path shows in her writing. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to be better informed about mental health issues among college students.--
Carina Julig, cuindependent.com
Fagan delivers the sequence of events in such a heartfelt but very real way--Caitlyn Pilkington, Women's Running
Fagan does an exceptional job laying out [Maddy's] pain in a narrative style that is both persuasive and honest . . . a comprehensive, essential, and well-written piece about mental health, as well as a small step toward reducing the stigma around anxiety and depression.--Erin McCarthy, Philadelphia Inquirer
Fagan's book is well-researched and the message is timely and important.--Publishers' Weekly
Gripping and universal
--Trevor Noah, The Daily Show
Holleran seems so alive on the page; her messages and Fagan's prose create someone who seems a real, living thing, so much so that by the end, this reader was rooting for her to talk to someone

--Flotrack
It is impossible not to be affected by Holleran's heart-wrenching story. An appropriate (if difficult) read for current and future college athletes, their coaches, and parents.--Library Journal
Praise for What Made Maddy Run
The book goes beyond telling a heartbreaking story; it encourages compassion toward young adults struggling with mental health issues and will ultimately help us think about ways to prevent similar tragedies.--National Book Review
With immense empathy, [Fagan] shares insights particular to student athletes, but presents them in universally accessible language and connects with the non-athlete through vivid examples--Shelf-Awareness
