Another amazing book

For a second novel, this one stands out among the best and proves that Laura Moriarty is not a flash-in-the-pan. I'm glad she waited to publish this book because it is as excellent if not more so than the Center of Everything. I found the characters believable and the story engrossing. Can't wait for the next one!

An amazing second novel!

I was looking forward to this book for months after reading The Center of Everything, which was Moriarty's first novel. Once again she wrote a unique story with characters that were beautifully developed. She has a real talent for getting the complete character of a mother right, even when they are mothers that you may want to hate. I can't wait for her next book!

smart, literate and unique

This novel weaves a spell. It starts when a teenage girl kills a classmate in an auto accident. It's a tough subject, but Moriarty handles it with grace. The ramifications on both families, and, in fact, the entire community are believable and honest. This is sure to be grist for some wonderful book club discussions.

Another slam dunk for Laura Moriarty

Once again, Laura Moriarty proves that she has the most amazing instincts for character development and dialogue. You really feel like you know these people. They are three-dimensional: you don't always like them, but you GET them. I can't wait for the next one!!!
