“This debut novel from neurodivergent author McNicoll will bring readers to tears and have them cheering for Addie as she learns how much she has to offer the world.” -School Library Journal, Starred Review
“The author, herself neurodivergent, imbues Addie’s unapologetically autistic perspective with compassion and insight.” -Kirkus Reviews
