Product description


"This debut is...flecked with an endearing blend of idealism, empathy, and quirk..." --Booklist

"Moe uses lyrical language to introduce teenagers whose problems go beyond bullying or unrequited love. She treats Michael's unusual home situation with realistic grace, while the relationship between the two teenagers is organic and interesting. A summer long punishment becomes a sensitive, thoughtful novel." --Kirkus Reviews

"It's about love and understanding and betrayal and pain. All the necessary ingredients to make a connection to the reader." --Teen Librarian Toolbox

"There is a beautiful relationship between two teens who connect over poems of Neruda...and their ever-witty banter." --Voya Magazine

"Those who choose to read it will not regret it. It addresses some interesting topics (hoarding, missing father, community service, car bombs), and the not-so-average love story is refreshing. A good, quick read to take readers away from the usual dystopia and back into the real world." --Voya Magazine

"Character-driven, funny, lyrical." --New York Public Library Bibliophile blog
