The Globe and Mail, which is really exciting. Here's a snippet of their review:
"Authentic portrayals of teen sexuality are few and far between...But Ontario author C.K. Kelly Martin unabashedly portrays the hormonal realities of being 16 and 17 in this dual narrative of second cousins Ivy and Lucan. Martin does not shy away from the messier realities of young love, including a laudably prolonged and uncomfortable description of an STI..."
And an outtake from the Quill & Quire write-up:
"C.K. Kelly Martin’s YA writing is the kind you want to give the teens in your life. It’s written for them, not adult crossover readers, and it meets teens where they live. Her latest novel, told in two characters’ alternating voices, is a flinchingly accurate look at the confusion and conviction of adolescence."
If you're in Canada you can pick up Delicate in various bricks and mortar bookstores and online shops right now. Delicate's U.S. release is scheduled for May 16th but I'm currently running a Goodreads contest (U.S. only) to celebrate the January 16th U.S. release of my previous Dancing Cat Books offering, The Sweetest Thing You Can Sing. Each winner will receives a copy of both The Sweetest Thing You Can Sing AND Delicate. Good luck!
