Our Bookseller says:

“This book reads fast, which you’ll know from the opening pages — they are a ride. The structure, which oscillates between past and present, lends itself well to the human spirit, itself too aware of the ways in which adolescence and friendship shape adulthood for better and worse. It’s the softer things, the everyday things that “have such outsize importance.” Buntin makes this clear.” – Miranda
