Praise For Me, Penelope CL…
Lively prose, humorous situations, and certain quirks in the plot that surprise.
By the book's end, Lopi has truly come of age by reconciling her past, making peace with her present, and finding confidence in her future.
At once brutally cynical and achingly naive. . . . Jahn-Clough's prose is artfully stilted--reflecting Lopi's uncomfortable approach to life--but infused with startling flashes of beauty, while her doodle-y heart-themed spot art opens each chapter with thought-provoking visual symbolism.
