What people are saying about LOVE AND LEFTOVERS:
Starred Review From School Library Journal, January, 2012
The author does a terrific job of keeping the plot moving by using poetry to her advantage. Reluctant readers will appreciate the brevity while poetic souls will appreciate the format.

From Booklist January 2012:
This first novel may make teenage readers’ hearts beat a bit faster.

From Publisher's Weekly
November 28, 2011:
With multiple shredded relationships and friendships, there’s more than enough angst to go around, as Marcie rages against the decisions her parents have made, as well as her own.
From Kirkus Reviews
October 1, 2011:
A verse novel with real depth to accompany all that white space.
Although the words are simple, the themes of Love and Leftovers are not.
From Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books
[Marcie's] story is thus as credible as her voice, and readers will relate to her complicated but accessible heartbreak, as she, like her parents, makes mistakes and struggles to fix them.
