A 2011 ALA Popular Paperbacks Title
"[MacCullough] has created an enormously sympathetic character in Tamsin, whose itchy relationship with her family will resonate with teens struggling to define themselves. Characters, setting, conflict―all develop nicely to create a light urban fantasy that goes down easy and will have readers asking for its sequel."―Kirkus Reviews
"With the glut of contemporary romantic supernatural tales, this will be popular, but the action, drama, and great potential for compelling sequels set it apart from the crowd."―Booklist
"MacCullough's writing is evocative without distracting from her story; readers will identify with Tam's desire to create a space away from parental expectations and take comfort that even extraordinary families make mistakes."―Publishers Weekly
