Praise for The Lonely Ones:
* "Spare and poignant, every word of this haunting and elegant novel in verse feels painstakingly selected....Fain's story is simply a brilliantly crafted coming-of-age novel that will appeal to the hearts and minds of all readers who have ever felt alone."--Kirkus Reviews *STARRED REVIEW*
"The lyrical free verse style moves the narrative swiftly along....Gorgeous writing distinguishes this short, but not shallow, read."--School Library Journal
"This novel in free verse is exactly what a poetic novel should be...an immersive novel, like any good tale in which readers can take any individual poem and examine it in depth for word use, rhythm, and meaning."--VOYA
