“Mabey gives us a tale of teens in flux. Teens where progress has been made. Teens who need more progress. And teens who needed the future so much that they denied their past and present. A coming-of-age tale centered around a relic that serves as a different metaphor for each teen, there is an unspoken wish for each character that needs to be proclaimed - so that each can character can be who they were meant to be. Mabey has the gift of seeing all identities and embracing all.”
