Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 6–9—This story walks the line between being funny and serious, and not always successfully. Fourteen-year-old Ruthie lives in tiny Odessa, DE, with her neurotic single mother. When she was 11, they visited her wealthy aunt in New York City but left after one night and Ruthie was forbidden to contact her again. Three years later, a new girl, whom she calls the Perfect Girl, attracts her friend Perry's attention just as Ruthie realizes that she is interested in him. The teen calls her aunt for advice, and she decides to come and help. She learns that Aunt Marty's husband left her for another woman and that she needed to get away. After she admits this to her sister, their relationship begins to thaw, and readers learn the reason for the grudge. Both adults' actions seem over-the-top. Thankfully, other than buying silk underwear at Victoria's Secret and getting endless pedicures, Aunt Marty's advice is mostly solid. Ruthie takes Perry, an astrology buff, to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. But, even though they have a terrific time and he calls Ruthie "a perfect girl," there's no when they kiss. It's a letdown after she has spent most of the book pining for him. In the end, while giving her eulogy at their elderly tenant's funeral, Ruthie realizes that it's the little details that define a relationship and that perfection is irrelevant. Aunt Marty moves out, but she's become part of Ruthie's life—and her mom's—for good.—Tina Zubak, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, PA

Mary Hogan is the bestselling author of Two Sisters and the historical novel, The Woman in the Photo. Previous novels include the young adult titles, The Serious Kiss, Perfect Girl and Pretty Face (HarperCollins). Mary lives in New York City with her husband, Bob, and their Catahoula Leopard rescue dog, Lucy. Photos:

A personal note from Mary: First, let me express my immense gratitude for the support you all have given me. It's truly a privilege to wake up each morning and have the opportunity to do what I love to do. Second, my new novel, Left, is a love story that's personal as well as fictional. Inspired by my life and a friend's experience, I created a tale in which the main character's fantasy life helps her cope with an upsetting--though ultimately uplifting--reality.

Left is a departure from my last novel which was historical fiction. To those of you who expect another historical story, thank you in advance for allowing me to tell a different sort of tale.

All my best to you,
