Kristen-Paige Madonia is a remarkable young novelist. Her writing is luminous, her voice original, and the journey she takes us on, compelling. From the first page she pulls the reader into a world of authentic characters we’ve never met before, characters living real and complicated lives, and she doesn’t let go. Sure to appeal to both teens and adults who will want to read it again, just as I did. What a thrill to discover this talented writer.
