Editorial Reviews

Review

"Readers will be pulled into Hyde's exquisitely written story with characters so sharp you'll feel like you know them personally. Verdict: Read this book, pay it forward, then pass it on!" —Library Journal

"Hyde’s latest is a wonderful read, especially for her fans." —Booklist

"If you are looking for a story that highlights the complexity of human relationships, told through some intensely flawed yet relatable characters, then look no further...this is definitely a story that will stick with me." —Running ‘N’ Reading
