Editorial Reviews

Robert Duperre
This is an innocent book and we should understand that as the volumes build and the characters grow older, the product will become darker and more adult. This is why the early books - or episodes - of these particular series should be cherished. Though they grew and reached exciting and satisfactory endings, there is still, when one looks back, a sort of melancholy that emerges. We understand that we've known these characters since they were naïve and impressionable.
Heidi Sutherlin
There are so many things that impressed me about this story. The imagery is lush and expands along with Mira's perception of her world. The characters are flawed, endearing, infuriating at times and very human. They too become more vivid as Mira learns to understand the complex behaviors of her peers. There is tremendous emotional growth as the group of young people move through their last year of schooling. Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of this story is it's gender neutral premise.
