Reviews

"Funny, childlike and wise all at once." --Los Angeles Times "What makes this novel winsome is hearing the authentic voice of a young woman -- bewildered, self-deprecating, funny, wise -- as she navigates the world on her own." --USA Today "Endearing. . . . Concise takes us into a new territory, all the more exciting for its virginity." --Chicago Sun-Times "A fast, breezy read, don't be so easily entertained as to miss the many nuances-beyond the most obvious definitions are deeper, more satisfying meanings." --San Francisco Chronicle
