Product description

Review

"Tender, honest, moving, and lyrical. Zentner is the real thing." --Benjamin Alire Saenz, winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction and Printz Honor winner

An Indie Next List Selection

"Zentner does an excellent job in creating empathetic characters, especially his protagonist Carver, a budding writer whose first-person account of his plight is artful evidence of his talent."--Booklist, Starred

"Racial tensions, spoiled reputations, and broken homes all play roles in an often raw meditation on grief and the futility of entertaining what-ifs when faced with awful, irreversible events."--Publishers Weekly, Starred

"[E]xquisite and tragic." -Shelf Awareness, Starred

"[A] novel full of wisdom." --Kirkus

"[The] kind of intelligent, intense, and life-affirming tale that will resonate with teens seeking depth and honesty." --SLJ

"An organic, frequently raw narrative." -Horn Book

"Tissues not optional." --The Bulletin

"Move over, John Green; Zentner is coming for you." --The New York Public Library

"Will fill the infinite space that was left in your chest after you finished The Perks of Being a Wallflower." --BookRiot.com

"A story about friendship, family and forgiveness, it's as funny and witty as it is utterly heartbreaking." --PasteMagazine.com

"A brutally honest portrayal of teen life . . . [and] a love letter to the South from a man who really understands it." --Mashable.com

"Zentner's great achievement -- particularly impressive for a first novel -- is to make us believe three such different people could be friends. He also manages to blend a dank, oppressive, Flannery O'Connor-esque sense of place with humor and optimism .... I adored all three of these characters and the way they talked to and loved one another." --New York Times Book Review
