Review:

"One of the most beautiful books I have ever read" (Jennifer Niven, author of All the Bright Places)

"Schmidt provokes tears, despite his underplayed prose, with a tone and directness reminiscent of John Steinbeck." (Nicolette Jones Sunday Times, Children's Book of the Week)

"A deeply affecting story of love and loss that sympathetically reflects the intensity of adolescence." (Julia Eccleshare Guardian)

"Schmidt writes with an elegant simplicity in this paean to the power of love" (Kirkus, starred review)

"A YA novella about love and friendship and loyalty... be prepared to be moved" (Martin Chilton Telegraph, The best young adult books of 2016)
