“Chan’s descriptions of the tensions arising between adults and adolescents have the ring of truth…. (her endings) leave the reader pondering on the peculiarities and vagaries of human nature. Now that’s a good story.”
Elizabeth MacCallum – The Globe and Mail

Her clear-eyed view of teens and their sometimes surprising behaviour (both good and bad) is sympathetic but never sugar-coated.”
Sandy Van Harten – The Hamilton Spectator
