In a starred review, PW wrote, "This first novel combines pathos with insight as it describes adolescent girls being hospitalized for a variety of psychiatric disorders. The book sympathetically and authentically renders the difficulties of giving voice to a very real sense of harm and powerlessness." Ages 12-up. (Feb.)
