Some nice humans have been saying nice things about my book The Second Life of Ava Rivers, coming out on Razorbill August 28th. 

Booklist's starred review says: "Gardner’s gorgeous language and the atmospheric tone makes this a well-crafted, genre-defying story that deserves wide readership."

VOYA gives it a perfect ten! and says: "The Second Life of Ava Rivers is an enthralling tale of grief and trauma suitable or all teen (and adult) readers."

Kirkus says: "A deftly written examination of familial relationships, trauma, and post-adolescence." 

And Publisher's Weekly says: "Gardner (Perdita) shows compassion as she delves into Vera’s emotions and Ava’s complicated sensibility while making potentially sensational subject matter seem plausible."

Appreciate you taking the time, fancy pants reviewers.
