review 1: GORGEOUS. Beautiful lyrical language, well drawn characters, and incredibly thoughtful & thought-provoking explorations of sexuality, gender, art, and human relationships. Others have written much more eloquently about the excellence of Sarah McCarry's books (including The Book Smugglers in a fairly recent edition of their Kirkus column) so I'll just say that this genre-bending novel is one of my favorites of 2014. I would recommend it to fans of both fantasy and contemporary realistic fiction--and especially to readers with an interest in stories that explore the experiences of teenage girls with complexity and authenticity.
review 2: This book was fantastic! I received an advanced reading copy in the mail from the publishers through Goodreads First Reads,
... moreand I can definitely say that readers are in for a treat when it comes out in July this year! The story follows Cass, a street-smart runaway who knows how to have fun, and Maia, an extremely gifted pianist on her way to the best music school in the country. When the two meet, both girls begin to adapt to one another, and undergo a major transformation in personality and spirit. The parallel plot lines track the progression of the girls' transformations, and make for an interesting and unique reading experience. This YA novel won't dissapoint! less
