REVIEWS

For FIRST & THEN

“With sporadic references to Jane Austen’s famous characters and wickedly inventive language, Mills closely observes the social milieu of an American high school obsessed with our favorite sport and makes readers care what happens. A fresh, smart, inventive, and altogether impressive debut.”

Kirkus, Starred Review!

For THIS ADVENTURE ENDS

“Mills seamlessly creates art imitating life imitating art while bringing freshness to the familiar romantic conventions she invokes. With taut, realistic dialogue, she expertly crafts blossoming friendships and nascent romances.”

Publishers Weekly

For FOOLISH HEARTS

“Mills thoughtfully explores the nuances of all kinds of relationships, both friendly and romantic, via Claudia and her circle of friends… Through these friendship struggles and romances old and new, Mills evokes the high stakes and vast rewards of trust, intimacy, and honesty.”

Publishers Weekly, Starred Review!

For FAMOUS IN A SMALL TOWN

“Rife with witticism, like a finely honed sitcom, and brimming with heart.”

Kirkus

“Mills has written a sweet, witty, and touching story about small-town life and the secrets we share. Delightfully multidimensional characters, an appealing setting, and a deceptively simple plot with some unanticipated twists make this is a novel that transcends the conventional romance genre. Readers will especially enjoy the lively dialogue and the effortless narrative flow. This novel is a fine addition to any collection serving young adults.”

VOYA, Starred Review!

For LUCKY CALLER

“A stunning read filled with wit and wisdom.”
