Gone are the supervillains and secret schools, and instead you have the things real teens care about: friends, first loves and the need to get away from everyday life. Grade: A

The short slice-of-life format becomes more emotionally captivating than nearly any ongoing series I have come across. Every single story made me stop, made me think.
— Girls Entertainment Network
Each story within the book is subtle, deliberately paced, and understated —- so it’s all the more surprising when you realize, just after finishing one of them, how much its impact has hammered home. There’s hardly a wrong note hit throughout.
