...The always opinionated, honest, and funny voice of Olivia narrates the bizarre adventure that she and Hal find themselves in, including making prank calls, riding in police cars, and trying to find Hal's missing mother. Siobhan Parkinson uses vivid and colorful wording and has Olivia periodically consulting the reader to make sure that everyone knows how great, yet weird, Hal is. Parkinson's bright word choice paints a playful and surprising picture in your mind as you read this fantastic page turner.

...Parkinson knows how to bring together the comic and heartbreaking without ever manipulating readers, and her characters have a full dose of humanity at their disposal. Memorable, wise and thoroughly entertaining.
