School Library Journal

“®ealistic and gritty. . . . The low reading level will appeal to struggling teens who want quick reads about characters their own age dealing with problems.”—School Library Journal

Kirkus Reviews

“Lundgren’s sure hand guides Seth and Brooke toward hope and healing and avoids the trap of sentimentality. A breath of fresh air lifts these familiar themes.”—Kirkus Reviews
