“A solid, dialogue-driven story that will keep readers interested in the many affairs of the heart coursing through this novel.” (Montreal Review of Books 2007-09-01)
"Passes with honours on portraying gay youth realistically, and also as a part of the whole picture, instead of apart from it...Credible and admirable." (Resource Links 2008-02-01)
"Short and fast-paced, it offers a typical teen dilemma, plus incorporates an important lesson...Teen girls will appreciate the smooth flowing prose and likeable characters.
