NZ Review A stunningly good, important book. -- Becky Albertalli, author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, now a major motion picture Unforgettable in its candor...Blake's timely and gripping contribution is a nuanced he-said, she-said story with a fierce feminist bent. --Booklist, STARRED review A compassionate and engaging novel about what it means to tell your truth, no matter how painful it might be. A must-read for all YA shelves. --School Library Journal, STARRED review Mara's bisexuality and Charlie's closeted nonbinary gender are examples not only of well-crafted representation but of vital nuance as Mara navigates the present while coming to terms with her past. Blake strives admirably and with resounding success for emotional authenticity while shedding light on issues of consent, trauma, relationships, and identity. --Horn Book Magazine A powerful, nuanced, and necessary read. --Kirkus
