"Morris offers a timeless and timely look at small town life, as seen by wise, verbose...thirteen-year-old heroine Nellie Peck...Morris's page-turner (which evokes TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD) will...send new readers searching for her earlier titles." --Publisher's Weekly
"Deftly, Wetta illuminats the gulf between the innocence of age 12 and the realizations that arise at 13...At turns unsparing, tender, and disturbing when it comes to rivalry and the nuances of love versus obligation, this is no typical bildungsroman. That Jack emerges from a crucible determined never to look back is unsurprising; it is the path leading him to this conclusion that is intelligently, wonderfully conceived." --Publishers Weekly
