Editorial Reviews

CM: Canadian Review of Materials
"Lori Weber captivates her reader and keeps them entranced as she brings the characters to life in such a manner that readers can compassionately empathize with them. The issues that Sandra faces are real issues that troubled teens may be facing in their lives, ... a book that gives readers hope."
Montreal Review of Books
"Weber's story poignantly and effectively illustrates how devastating the effects of a parent's abandonment can be on a teenager, and how an adolescent must adopt an adult role when the remaining parent is dysfunctional."
Quill and Quire
"Much of the subtle, haunting power of Split comes from Sandra's reticent, wary, understated narration. With deft precision and compassionate understanding, Weber brings to life her flawed, decent, confused characters."
CM Magazine
"Lori Weber captivates her reader and keeps them entranced as she brings the characters to life in such a manner that readers can compassionately empathize with them. The issues that Sandra faces are real issues that troubled teens may be facing in their lives, ... a book that gives readers hope."
