"Overt messages are presented engagingly for reluctant teen readers."
Southwestern Ohio Young Adult Materials Review Group - July 23, 2014
"A well-structured and well-developed novel. The characters are fleshed out, the emotions are real and earned, and the plot holds well. I especially liked that Bailey grew stronger from April’s bullying and actually used the experience to gain confidence in herself."
The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books - June 1, 2014
"Appealing and approachable...offers readers a summer story succinctly told, complete with adolescent girl dynamics, first-job jitters, and even a resident ghost. This story of a balanced, relatable heroine respects its readers, giving them a novel serious in tone, smartly paced, and skillfully executed."
CM Magazine - March 14, 2014
"A fast-paced read that will appeal not only to older, reluctant or struggling teen readers but also to stronger readers looking for a quick, engaging story. The subject matter and character conversation level is appropriate to older teens despite the use of simple, straightforward vocabulary."
