Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, January 6, 2014:
"Mlynowski continues to make comedy look easy in this smart and frequently hilarious novel, which features a collective first-person narrative that fits the premise like a glove... Filled with heartbreak, hilarity, and some brutal truths, Mlynowski s novel will leave readers thinking about the gaps between our private and public selves and the lies we tell others and ourselves."
RT Book Reviews, March 2014:
"Mlynowski hits all the right notes. There's enough levity to keep readers laughing, but this is far from fluff--the real-life commotions are engaging, and the characters are fully developed. The story is funny, sweet and true to life, as readers have come to expect from Mlynowski. Her teens are emotional without being drama queens, amusing but not twee. A perfect read."
Booklist, January 1, 2014:
"Readers will hope for a sequel with amped-up Espie secrets and scandals. Hand to fans of Cecily von Ziegesar s all-seeing" Gossip Girl "and Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian s "Burn for Burn" revenge books. Now, flu shot, anyone?"
Kirkus Reviews, February 1, 2014:
"The multiple characters are remarkably distinctive, and the plot moves along briskly, combining family drama, complicated romance and friendship turmoil into a compelling view of teen dynamics."
School Library Journal, April 2014:
"Mlynowski writes teen protagonists with heart and depth authentically illustrating the trials and tribulations of the high school experience, rather than making a mockery out of adolescent egocentrism. This is a fun read, recommended for fans of contemporary fiction."show more
