You Are My Only: The Bookslut Review

Monday, October 3, 2011

I am deeply privileged to have You Are My Only included in Colleen Mondor's October Bookslut column, which she has titled "Bradbury Season."  In a fascinating column that touches as well on White Crow (Marcus Sedgwick), All about Emily (Connie Willis), and Anna Dressed in Blood (Kendare Blake), among other titles, Colleen writes about You Are My Only with tremendous understanding and generosity.  She concludes with the words below.  Please read the entire column here.

In the end both Sophie and Emmy are young women who live in fear through no fault of their own and must struggle against great odds to find the truth without losing their minds in the process. In this very intense psychological thriller they take chances and most importantly do not give up. I like that in any novel and find a lot to admire in a book that gives me not just one but two young women to admire. The fact that Kephart accomplishes this in the midst of writing about a cute boy, a dog, some kite flying and classic literature is all par for the course for her fans but will impress many new readers who show up for the thrills this time. (And do read about Byberry if you get a chance -- it's about as scary as it gets.)
