Excerpt from Playing Nice in Pretty In Fiction!
"Truly refreshing and definitely worth your time."
-- Queen Elle Bee Reads
"The actual voice of Rebekah Crane's Playing Nice is so consistently unexpected that the book manages to feel fresh and new with every chapter. Marty is one of the more believable teen characters I've come across in a while: eager to please, silently resentful, and sexually curious. (Sound like anyone else you knew at sixteen, like maybe... yourself? No? Just me?)."
-- Dahlia Adler, YA Misfits
"It is a beautiful vision of the appalling truth behind prejudice, arrogance and (what I hope we all strive for) empathy."
