Dive: A Novel

'“V for Victory!” —The Advocate   “Poetic . . . [Donovan’s] frank approach to lesbian love and fatal illness packs a hard punch that will leave readers breathless.” —Publishers Weekly   “A masterfully descriptive psychological novel . . . Full of clarity and a strange beauty. This is a novel that is sure to provoke much thought and debate.” —School Library Journal   “[Donovan] has created a work of richly crafted prose that faithfully portrays the voice of adolescence. . . . [Her] characters have an affair, and like everything else in the book, it is depicted poetically.” —The New York Times   “Donovan’s writing is deep and resonant. There is an underlying tension that becomes all but palpable.” —The Boston Book Review   “Young women need more coming-of-age novels with complex heroine narrators giving their teen’s-eye view of the world; Donovan’s bold, compelling novel helps to fill that need.” —Booklist   “Stacey Donovan’s Dive neatly dismantles the argument that fiction for teens can’t also be serious, messy, thought-provoking literature. . . . [She] is braver, willing to imagine a world in which kids, like adults, write poetry, and in which adults, like kids, are lost.” —Noah Berlatsky, The Atlantic   “Dive is a beautiful YA novel of the highest quality.” —Nora Olsen, author of Frenemy of the People'
