"Whitcomb writes with a grace that befits Helen’s more modulated world while depicting contemporary society with sharp insight. In the subgenre of dead-narrator tales, this book shows the engaging possibilities of immortality–complete with a twist at the end that wholly satisfies." --School Library Journal School Library Journal
"A highly senual, supernatural story of two spirits caught in purgatory. . . . Mesmerizing." --Publishers Weekly Publishers Weekly
"Whitcomb is generous with atmospheric detail . . . and she creatively pulls together a dramatic and compelling plot that cleverly grants rebellious teen romance a timeless grandeur." --The Bulletin Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"[An] original, opinionated, sexy, and romantic novel of the afterlife." —Horn Book Horn Book
"Whitcomb writes beautifully . . . this will be irresistible to teens." ––Booklist Booklist, ALA
