...I was hooked from the first page...Matisse is a teen both kids and adults can relate to. Her struggle to fit in after leaving NYC for small-town Prague, her reluctance to tell others about her father's Parkinson's Disease, and her rollercoaster ride of new relationships make this story interesting, heartfelt and realistic. Five stars.

...This book is a real gem! I could not put it down, yet I never wanted it to end. The writing is fantastic and the story is incredibly engaging...Matisse learns that there is more to life than being cutting-edge. This debut novel from Daphne Grab is truly incredible! I highly recommend it to everyone. This book is going to be a real hit!!
