"Sanchez's expertly crafted narrative . . . [pulls] readers into Frenchie's anger and pain without straying into cliches of teen angst. . . . An exceptionally well-written journey to make sense of the senseless."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Sanchez (The Downside of Being Charlie) gets her heroine's tough exterior and vulnerable insides in just the right balance. . . . [She] provides a healing salve for teens who may know someone who has committed suicide, and also a strong testament against it."--Shelf Awareness (starred review)
"This is a fast, well-written read with a satisfactory though not necessarily happy ending and a protagonist to remember-a survivor and person of action. A solid choice that is accessible even for reluctant readers."
--School Library Journal
