Reviews

"Part "Dead Poet's Society." Part "Heathers." Entirely addictive."
--"Glamour
"
"A smoldering mystery set in a New England prep school... The author skillfully ratchets up the tension as Iris (and the reader) finds it harder and harder to tell who the good guys are... A gripping thrill ride that s also a thoughtful coming-of-age story."
--"Kirkus Reviews""In this engrossing novel, a would-be journalist unearths scandalous secrets at her prep school with the help of a famous reporter s ghost."
--"O Magazine""A coming of age page-turner."
"Library Journal""Hysterical and moving, "The Year of the Gadfly" fuses "Special Topics in Calamity Physics" with "Portnoy's Complaint" for girls. This book is an imaginative delight."
Gary Shteyngart, author of "Super Sad True Love Story""A dark, whirling, and compelling read. "The Year of the Gadfly" is a hilarious and heartbreaking story about friendship, acceptance, and trust the way our search for them shapes our youth and how that search can haunt us forever."
Jennifer Close, author of "Girls in White Dresses""This novel has so much going for it: the feisty, heartbroken heroine, the ghost of Edward R. Murrow, and a fascinating love story between an albino girl and a gifted young scientist. In a brilliant portrayal of the dark underbelly of adolescence, Miller explores a time when both our identity and our future are at stake, and shows how rare it is to leave that landscape unscathed."
Ann Napolitano, author of "Within Arm's Reach" and "A Good Hard Look ""It's hard to resist any novel whose young journalist heroine hallucinates that she's in conversation with Edward R. Murrow. But Jennifer Miller has also written a book with the feel of real life part science experiment, part mystery story, part a coming-of-age narrative sorting out the truth about one's friends and enemies."
David Ignatius, author of "Bloodmoney" "Jennifer Miller is a writer of exceptional promise, with instincts that are equally astute for insight into character, innovative structure, memorable phrasing, and startling plot turns that compel the reader to read on. In "The Year of the Gadfly," her literary gifts are on virtuoso display; readers will be drawn deeply into this narrative and never want to leave it!"
Carol Goodman, author of "The Lake of the Dead Languages" and "The Seduction of Water ""
