Quotes & Awards

  • “Rich in sharply observed relationships, deftly inserted wisdom, romances ending and beginning, and characters who are not afraid to pick themselves up and try again, Dessen’s tale will leave readers thoughtful, amused, reassured—and sorry when it concludes.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “A story heaped with crackling dialogue and sharp humor.”

    Library Journal

  • “This is young adult fiction at its best. Dessen has written a sensitive and very modern story…In the tradition of classic adolescent fiction, Dessen has written a hip and engaging story of self-discovery and personal growth. This is a wonderful read with strong messages for young girls coming into their own.”

    Children’s Literature

  • “A plot description of this contemporary problem novel may make it sound like a kind of Cinderella story, but Dessen’s ironic sense of humor and her knack for creating characters with both quirky personalities and universal emotions set her book apart…Readers will lap up the snappy dialogue, colorful episodes and unexpected pearls of wisdom. The lessons Colie learns about beauty, none of them new, come across with freshness and vitality.”
