Next, Sara Lovestam’s WONDERFUL FEELS LIKE THIS has two starred reviews!
“Empathy, identity, and the transformative power of music bind this tale of an atypical friendship between a teenage outcast and a jazz musician. There’s a an easy, languid flow to Lovestam’s omniscient third-person storytelling as different characters take the spotlight, but the author doesn’t soft-pedal mortality, Alzheimer’s, or Steffi’s bullies—Steffi’s self-control is all the more courageous in the face of their genuine cruelty.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review
“Sensitive and deeply moving: outstanding.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review readmoreremove
