You Against Me Reviews
"Starred Review. Well-drawn characters allow readers to sympathize with nearly everyone...With no tidy solutions, it's an unflinching portrayal of love under pressure. Ages 14+" - Publishers Weekly
"Starred Review. Crisp, revealing dialogue, measured pacing and candid, unaffected prose round out this illuminating novel in which any reader can find someone to root for or relate to. Ages 14+" - Kirkus
"Downham's strength here is in allowing for plenty of moral ambiguity
Most daringly, especially in contrast to the often simplistic portrayal of situations like these, Downham also shows Mikey and Ellie acting on their own dark impulses." - The New York Times, Emily Bazelon
"Starred Review. This excellent sophomore effort from the author of Before I Die (2007) should have broad appeal for teens looking for weighty issues tied to their romance. Grades 8-12." - Booklist
