- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 July #1
Serena and her best friend, Grimshaw, are stuck in their rural New England town. Serena, smart and cocky, enjoys annoying teachers and family. Grimshaw is considered white trash, but her love of dancing gives her hope there's a way out. Through a very long senior year, the two friends change and don't change, but it is Grimshaw's decision to leave with an older guy, who has plans for her to dance in California, that sets in motion an irrevocable transition. One of the best parts of the story is its sense of place, which is writ large. Small, broken towns don't get a lot of attention in youth books, but Tolman digs deep, exploring the people who live there, their nightmares as well as their dreams. Serena, confused about her place, comes to know what privilege means at a very visceral level. There's a lot here that could have been left out, including many characters, some underdeveloped and some who change their stripes without any warning. But the relationship between the girls will keep readers' interest with its depth and intensity. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
