"This is a book to cherish and to hold close like a warm, cuddly blanket that you draw around yourself to keep out the cold." Starred Review, Booklist, May 1, 2008: "Just the sort of cozy fare that's missing in today's mean-girl world." Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, April 28, 2008: "It's sheer pleasure to spend time with these exquisitely drawn characters, girls so real that readers will feel the wind through their hair as they power down the soccer field."
Review, San Francisco Chronicle, April 27, 2008:
"Birdsall writes with amazing grace."
Review, Parade, June 22, 2008:
"[A]n old-fashioned (in a good way) read with well-drawn characters, warmth, and humor."
Review, The New York Times Book Review, July 13, 2008:
"Birdsall's second novel . . . offers comforting comedy."
