Kirkus Reviews said, the author's "ear for dialogue, fluid prose and dark humor elevate this brief novel above other 'issue books'".[1] Library Media Connection said that the author's "experience with bulimia brings realism to the topic", and that "the mix of fantasy and action makes this short novel... compelling reading, especially for reluctant readers".[2] Jenny of Wondrous Reads found it "...brilliant."[3]
