    • Abstract:
      Summary: Evie and Emma are inseparable friends. They balance each other-- until Evie makes a flip decision that gets Emma in serious trouble. When Emma freezes Evie out, Evie is full of regret, and-- for the first time in her life-- entirely alone. Until she meets Theo, a boy who offers her a view of the world through a different lens. Just as she lets herself fall for Theo, Emma resurfaces, but her erratic behavior, drunken mishaps, and panicked phone calls leave Evie afraid there's something deeper going on. Can you help someone who doesn't want to be saved?

Booklist Reviews 2018 April #1

Evie and Emma have been best friends forever, but recently Evie feels like she's getting the short end of the friendship stick. Emma's reckless abandon used to be invigorating for shy, nervous Evie, but ever since Emma's brother died, she's been steadily spiraling out of control, which makes Evie determined to love her even harder. That's tough to do, though, when Evie doesn't get the same care in return, especially when she's feeling lost amid a romance with an alluring, opinionated boy; the prospect of an exciting (but scary) art scholarship; and the enduring financial struggles she and her mother face. McNamara's breathy, lyrical novel poignantly explores the damage wrought by codependent friendships and the difficulty of cutting a toxic friend loose—even when it's in that friend's best interest. Emma's eventual breakdown is sensitively rendered, and Evie's gradual realization that she deserves better is cheer worthy. With snarky teen characters, pages teeming with evocative, figurative language, and a moving focus on self-discovery, this will appeal to fans of poetry and character-driven stories about emotional growth. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2018 Fall

Reticent, artistic Evie feels out of step at her elite Manhattan school. Her only close friend is privileged Emma, but when Emma's impulsivity turns self-destructive and even cruel, Evie struggles to stand up for herself. Friendship troubles, family drama, and a charming but aloof love interest combine in typical realistic-YA fashion, albeit with a sensitive approach to class disparity.
