cannot believe i hadn't reviewed this before. this is the book that introduced me to second-wave feminism, mental illness and bisexuality as things that might exist in the world outside my own head, and of course, nerdy jewish boys. like harriet the spy, the betsy-tacy books, and (sad but true) the bsc series, so much of what i am and what i write can be traced back to this book.

One of my all-time favorite books. I love the respect and tenderness with which Myron Levoy treats his characters, each of whom is distinct, vivid, and deeply interesting and worth knowing. The love triangle is believable and the ending is satisfying.
One of those books I read over and over again, really loved it. The love triangle, chess, that boy, who is so different... Totally awesome at the time.
