LaCour strikes a new path through a familiar story, leading readers with her confident writing and savvy sense of prose. –Kirkus Reviews

 A fresh voice to the world of young adult literature, LaCour offers a style of mixed diary entries that blends flawlessly with the sections of Caitlin’s interactions with the world around her, creating a moving novel that speaks to the hope that can come from such a devastating grief. –VOYA, starred review

LaCour makes an impressive debut with an emotionally charged young adult novel about friendship and loss. What is most remarkable about LaCour’s tale is her ability to make the presence of an absent character so deeply felt.” –Publishers Weekly, starred review
