The Englewood Review of Books also posted a warm review, writing how “Erin McGraw’s main characters here display a lot of recognizably human susceptibilities, which make them relatable, like their idealism played against mounting impatience, but are idiosyncratic and quirky enough to also believably get into one huge mess of a mess.”
