B. White with the insouciance of Louis Sachar, Graff has written a tangle that should satisfy readers for years to come."&#8212;<i>Booklist</i>, starred review<br><i>Double Dog Dare</i><br>"Graff's...story is lighthearted and humorous, but honestly addresses the emotions associated with divorce. Her characters' voices, interactions, and hangups are relatable, as they battle each other and adjust to their families' reconfigurations."&#8212;<i>Publishers Weekly</i>
