“A tender, intense story capturing the vast scope of a young adult’s interior universe.”
– Kirkus Reviews

“Sherrard enables readers to see how differently the two teens see their relationship and this situation that they may be in. She beautifully, succinctly captures Brooke’s sense of loneliness and isolation, her uncertainty and fear, and both her desire to know and her dread of knowing. … This is an insightful, thought-provoking and perceptive novel, a brief but impactful exploration of the complexities of the human heart.”
– Atlantic Books Today

“5/5 stars. Highly Recommended”
