Review quote

"The book has, along with its wisdom, and its rich characters, wonderful pacing and dialogue, and a real feel for the reality of young people's prejudices and passions, as well as the way in which they can melt, in the face of reality. It seems to me to be as compelling for parents as for young adults." -- Myra Goldberg "Rosalind, Whistling and the forthcoming As It Turned Out"
