    1. My full review is available here: full-stop/2017/07/11/rAn excerpt:"Colonialism, white settlers, middle-class aspirations, American military expansion and might; these are the building blocks on which suburban white aspirations in New Mexico are founded, regardless of whether its members identify with the values of American exceptionalism, or, like Celine’s mother, disavow them and chafe at the injustice of it all. On the horizon, along with the desert, there is the tinge of danger that Celine [...]

    2. loved this book. celine and julie are two narrative mirrors erupting out of a desert in new mexico. consistently smart. a work that through anecdote, analysis, and aphorism -- along with elemental doses of despair and anger -- exposes the systemic construction and confines of "girlhood," arguably defined here as an integral, lower limit Tiqqun upper limit Bratmobile.or, another way: the various acts of defining found to be inextricably tautological to the problem. this dilemma at the heart of th [...]

    3. "These are girls not as bodies, not as parts, but as humans being alive. It's amazing this must be said, but it must. Such recognition is not a given; it is a fight."This is the kind of book I am always waiting for but don't find often enough: heady, feminist, challenging. Formally complex, it progresses from lyrical to surreal, blending urgent ideas from popular culture, recent history and the literary theory so many of us read in graduate school. Still, it remains grounded in reality, especial [...]

    4. This book is not the definitive book on NAFTA, or the American Southwest, or most of the other things that Chris Kraus thinks this book is a definitive exploration of. But this is a book thoughtful about violence and girls and girls' bodies. It is important and critical and novel in medium (it's a pun, of course). It's a very good book.

    5. I wanted to like it. I did like it. Then nothing happened. And the final part was disjointed paragraphs about why capitalism is bad and neofeminism is good. I get. It just fell short for me.

    6. Really excited to see the next one she puts out—this was great, and a lot of fun, but felt like a stepping stone. The last chapter blew me away.

    8. A charming first novel with lots of good writing. In the final quarter it hits a morose boyfriend glitch, but I would definitely read another book by this author. The theme doesn't fully cohere, but the language is inventive and the generational details are resonant.
