"Not only does Oseman imbue Charlie and Nick with plenty of charm and vulnerability, she also treats them (and their interior worlds) with a level of understanding and care that elevates the story, blending the genres of teen romance and coming-of-age in a highly moving manner. The resulting product is an understated exploration of love and self, full of quiet joy". -- The AV Club
"The storytelling moves effortlessly from tearful poignance to laugh-worthy moments to stirring romance." -- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Nick and Charlie's lighthearted and tender romance is delightful, and the genuine heart present in the characters makes for a wholesome and uplifting ride... Incredibly lovable from start to finish." -- Kirkus Reviews
