"Told with a female protagonist, Springer’s shrewd update of the Cyrano de Bergerac story uses it as the perfect prism for middle school girls, demonstrating how hitting puberty at different times can affect social status, love relationships, and friendship."
"For a light, rather humorous novel, it’s a surprisingly potent theme, and it also brings up an interesting point: how these bodily changes are hard on the girls who develop early as well as on the ones who develop later."
"A surprisingly successful, suspenseful, and engrossing take on the Cyrano story with a contemporary twist."
Cici Reno also made her debut at ALA Midwinter in Boston this past weekend. The book was mentioned at the #ReadNRave and here in the Midwinter Read 'n Rave Report.
And Sterling gave away so many advanced copies at their booth! Too cool!
