Plenty of high-stakes drama. A vigilante justice story with a moral compass and a tender heart.--Booklist

* A refreshing, timely, and downright delightful story with a diverse, three-dimensional cast of characters whose hijinks are thrilling without being unrealistic.
--School Library Connection, starred review

* This is quick-witted, fiercely intelligent storytelling at its finest--a testament to the power of women, LGBTQ strong, socially conscious, enormously fun, and utterly irresistible.--VOYA, starred review

[Audiobook narrators] Moll and Rosenberg nail the quirks and layers of their characters perfectly-from Will's disaffected sneer, which covers up her deep vulnerability, to Harriet's chipper observations, which are tinged with quiet desperation. The narrators excel at creating distinct voices for each girl while consistently mirroring the other in the dialogue between them. The consistency gives listeners insight into Will's changing perception of Harriet and vice versa.--AudioFile

[For] readers who like their feminist empowerment and gay-positive romances with a healthy dose of fun.--BCCB

A hilarious social satire wrapped in a queer love story.--Cecilia Cackley, East City Bookshop (Washington, DC)

Come for patriarchy-smashing pranks; stay for the sweet love story.--NPR Books --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
