The Horn Book

“Smart and sexy.”
Shelf Awareness

“Bauman…has a wonderful eye and voice.”

  1. I love this novel. I haven’t actually read on my own and so fast in such a long time. I just started reading the book today and finished. I related to many things in the novel, many emotions stirred up, especially laughter with Inggy and Angel… I appreciate authors like you that can write about teen life. I wish there was a sequeal where Joey and Angel try to start over , Inggy goes to college…where would it leave the others?
