Editorial Reviews

CM: Canadian Review of Materials
"...a story that is entrenched with the reality surrounding teenagers today.... a story for every teenager, both male and female. For the male, the novel teaches the lesson of the need to take care of other's feelings, and for the female, it shows that it is sometimes necessary to ask for help if you do not think you can say no. A book that, once it is started, is difficult to put down."
Montreal Review of Books
"Polak's cautionary work is hauntingly convincing."
