“In this first novel she pulls off the unusual pairing of grisly and touching.”New York Times

“In this first novel she pulls off the unusual pairing of grisly and touching.”New York Times

“O’Donnell’s finely drawn characters display the full palette of human flaws and potential. Told in the alternating voices of Marnie, Nelly, and Lennie, this beautifully written page-turner will have readers fretting about what will become of the girls.”Booklist (starred review)
