A MIGHTY GIRL BOOK OF 2018

STARRED KIRKUS REVIEW

“Purcell handles the nuances of interracial relationships with a remarkably sensitive and observant eye and challenges readers to view racism under a broader category of generalizations. A poignant interracial love story that grapples with hate and violence.”

– Starred Review - Kirkus

“This is Not a Love Letter is, in fact, just that — a long, beautiful, heart-breaking love letter to potential and possibilities and hope, to the pain we survive in youth and carry with us into adulthood.”
