Anyone who has been disappointed in love will relate to this book. The
well-known situation where the artsy girl gets the popular, athletic guy and
then it doesn't work out, is given a fresh, smart, and sympathetic treatment by
Handler. Maira Kalman's fabulous, expressive illustrations deepen the emotional
impact of the story.
I loved this book. Min Green is an original
character with a memorable voice that resonates beyond the story. - Trish
And more from Sally - The fine illustrations enhance a wonderful story of unexpected love found and
then unexpectedly lost. I recognized my teen self in Min Green as she struggled
in a relationship outside of her crowd and with the compromises needed to
maintain the relationship. The interesting and sometimes quirky characters came
alive for me, and I found myself cheering for Min.
