Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up New girl in town Chelsea Olinger hopes to pass unnoticed through her sophomore year at Crestwood High. This proves impossible when wealthy, self-assured Ashley Packard singles Chelsea out as her friend. Flattered by the attention, Chelsea is soon immersed in Ashley's golden world, ignoring her mother's disapproval and even her own uneasy feelings. Only after a senseless tragedy occurs does Chelsea fully realize Ashley's true character and motives, as well as come to understand what friendship really means. The characters, both adult and adolescent, are expertly drawn and totally believable. Peck obviously knows how teenagers think and feel, and this insight enables him to bring his characters vibrantly to life. Especially compelling is Chelsea, a complex girl longing to fit in with the accepted group. Her offbeat friend Pod is a delightful blend of boyish enthusiasm and mature thoughtfulness. A sensitive and insightful view of teenage life that may cause readers to ponder their own search for identity, Peck's newest book is a must for both school and public library collections. Denise A. Anton, Corn Belt Library System, Normal, Ill.

    Great book that doesn't get the attention it deserves

    Hardly anyone knows about this book. It's one of the best I've ever read. I first read it in junior high, and now I'm in college and I still enjoying reading it. The author writes from a startlingly true perspective of a teenager. This book isn't some nice story with a happy ending--it's gritty, and hard-hitting, and feels like it could happen in real life. Plus there are some great moral lessons in there for teens. I wholeheartedly recommend it!
