EVERYTHING I KNOW ABOUT YOU
“Tally is a refreshing middle grade character who is never defined unilaterally. Her efforts to navigate the complexities of adolescent friendships and ever-evolving social circles will resonate with readers. Ava’s struggle with anorexia is portrayed with care and makes an important subject accessible for a younger audience… (The) author succeeds in weaving together threads of self-acceptance, individuality, what it means to be a friend, and even responsible Internet use. A strong addition to library collections.”—School Library Journal
“(Tally’s) passionate impulse to protect her friends is immediately sympathetic, as is her growing understanding of both herself and her classmates. A poignant and hilarious slice of middle grade life.”—Kirkus Reviews
"Tally’s transformations and insights in her first-person narrative ring true, as does the rest of the novel: she’s surrounded with complex, interesting characters in a realistic plot that nicely captures middle-school experiences and friendships."—Booklist
"Dee (Star-Crossed) sensitively portrays Tally’s fears about being left behind as friends change, as well as the signs and impact of the anorexia Ava is hiding. Readers will root for big-hearted Tally, whose willingness to speak her truth makes for honest and engaging narration."—Publishers Weekly
