What the Critics Say

"A readable, ultimately uplifting book about a difficult subject." (School Library Journal)
"This tale of a good family that suddenly finds itself in bad trouble is witty and spare and expertly maps the territory of depression. Julie Schumacher is a wonderful writer; I love this novel." (Judith Guest, best-selling author of Ordinary People)
