“Hugely appealing and stealthily moving”
— The New York Times
Mary Wallace and Athena are brave, and seventeen, and fencers, and training for the Junior Olympics. They practice together, they compete against each other, they spend their lives together. They wish they were friends.
Appropriate for ages 14 and up.
“Fierce and lovely… Parts of it cut so close to lived female experience… that they hardly feel like fiction at all.”
