My first big review came today, and I am so excited to announce that The Chance You Won’t Return got a starred review from Kirkus. Happy dance time!
I was so so nervous about reviews starting to come in, and having this one lead the way is so exciting. I was so glad that the reviewer mentioned that the novel includes “a character with a mental disorder who never loses her humanity or becomes a caricature.” That was so important to me in the writing of the book and I’m so glad to see that came through for this reader.
