Michelle Falkoff's fiction and reviews have been published in ZYZZYVA, DoubleTake and the Harvard Review, among other places. She is a graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop and currently serves as Director of Communication and Legal Reasoning at Northwestern University School of Law.
"[D]ebut author Falkoff gives Sam a strong voice to narrate his grief over the loss of his best friend and his confusion... distinctive and gripping narrative about a shared human challenge: how to deal with the passing of a loved one."
"The strong characters, dialogue and the use of the playlist to structure the book make this a good pick for struggling readers."
School Library Journal
"Centering each chapter on one of the playlist’s songs, debut author Falkoff lightens the substantial topics of grief, bullying, and suicide with Sam’s engaging investigation into the culprit behind the assaults."
