Early reviews of the book:

 “Via a horror-tinged psychological thriller, McGinnis uses the lens of a whip-smart teen from a family with a history of mental illness to sensitively explore relevant themes. Striking a careful balance of dry humor and occasionally harrowing depictions of Neely’s mental health challenges, McGinnis delivers a compassionate and gripping read.” — Publisher’s Weekly

McGinnis brings an enormous amount of compassion in her portrayal of Neely’s struggles, contextualizing them within her family’s history of mental health issues and eventually using them to more fully delineate Neely, her trauma, and her grief. Neely evokes a strange concoction of sympathy and repulsion, bringing an additional layer of complexity to a viciously taut whodunit.” — BCCB
