"There is honesty peppering these pages, or at least a sincere striving toward it. There is some joy and some pain, humor and heartache. And there is considerable hope too, embodied in thoughts and feelings expressed in more than 140- or 280-character length, without selfies or emojis."

—Rick Kogan, Chicago Tribune

“The(se) writers are brave and straightforward in their willingness to tell the truth about the events of their lives, how they felt about those events, and what they learned from them, and that knowledge is substantial and apparent on every page.”

—Michelle Falkoff, author of Playlist for the Dead and Pushing Perfect
