"Folksy lyricism...a colorful supporting cast...a fresh story. As they say in church, 'Hallelujah.'"
— Los Angeles Times Book Review "Assured...devastating."
"The story compels...Reynolds has an imagination that takes the reader into what feels like the world of a teen-age girl trying to make peace with the world and with God."
— Richmond Style Weekly
"Reynolds is the newest and most exciting voice to emerge in contemporary Southern fiction."
— San Francisco Bay Guardian
