Review:

"The American female myth."
--Madelon Bedell

It is an essential American novel, perhaps the essential American novel for girls . . . Girls come to it on their own.- -Jane Smiley, from the Introduction
Praise for the Penguin Threads series:
-In a time of downloads, E-Ink and Kindles, it is nice to see that Penguin still strives to produce beautifully designed physical books. . . . Miss Tamaki is one talented artist and her collaboration with Penguin is a match made in book heaven.- --PhillyBurbs.com
-When it comes to covers, Penguin is hard to beat. But somehow, the publisher just keeps upping the ante.- --Booklicious (bookliciousblog.com)
-Breathtaking . . . Major kudos to publisher Penguin Books for such a beautifully art-directed and realized series of covers. . . . Modern, sweet, beautiful. Inspired.- --Sublimestitching.com
