"...nothing can hold a candle to Dainty's metaphorical magic." Goodreads Review

"The writing is stunning and assured, and it's hard to believe this is a first novel. It is a startling book in its honesty about family secrets, loss, mental illness, and the cruelty we inflict on others."

Hester Kaplan, Author 

"A beautifully written coming-of-age story from

         a promising author."    --Kirkus Review

"...Jessica Dainty is certainly one to watch. With talent as obvious as hers, it is unlikely that she will remain undiscovered for long!" Readers' Favorite
