"Firmston is one of few authors who writes about schizophrenia from a teens point of view. The fear of not knowing is what underlies this story and is what makes this a page-turner. " - Sherry Rampey, VOYA (U.S.)
Rated G - Good, even great at times, generally useful!
The home life [of the main characters is described in all its horrendous detail to make it real for the reader who may not have lived with mental illness. - Patricia Jermey, Resource Links
Kim Firmston has crafted a YA novel that has a simple plot and lots of depth. She brings up many rich and complex themes, such as the tension between home and school life, which makes this book a worthwhile read...viivid and uncompromising. High school teens who like books that have depth and grit will enjoy this book
Highly Recommended. - Mark Mueller, CM: Canadian Review of Materials
