Product description


"A character-driven...a well-written and thought-provoking debut."--Booklist

"A strong first novel, Madonia's coming-of-age tale reveals both flawed and compassionate characters."--VOYA

"Beautifully told."--Kirkus Reviews

"Debut novelist Madonia offers an intimate reflection on the meaning of family...[a] thoughtful story about finding an identity and a home."--Publishers Weekly

"Readers will appreciate the candidness of the writing. This compelling debut novel is sure to appeal."--School Library Journal

"The characters are complex, fully drawn people who make mistakes, change, grow, and remain likable through it all."--BCCB

"Kristen-Paige Madonia is a remarkable young novelist. Her writing is luminous, her voice original, and the journey she takes us on, compelling. From the first page she pulls the reader into a world of authentic characters we've never met before, characters living real and complicated lives, and she doesn't let go. Sure to appeal to both teens and adults who will want to read it again, just as I did. What a thrill to discover this talented writer."--Judy Blume

"Lemon's thoughts, actions and feelings are palpable, and we are tugged along with her on her journey to find out who she is--and how much the imprints of those in her past and present will affect her future. Beautiful prose and a heartfelt story."--Kathryn Erskine, National Book Award-winning author of Mockingbird --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
