"This book. THIS BOOK. It’s so good that I’ve read it twice (and it doesn’t even come out until next year). It had me Googling like a madwoman, falling in love with complicated characters and impossible situations, and hugging it when I was finished. The description of this book didn’t grip me the way Kimmery Martin's debut did (The Queen Of Hearts, which I also loved), but I was hooked by this one from the very beginning. It’s substantive, incredibly timely, but also just an incredibly written novel that makes you feel and makes you think." -- Hitha Palepu
