"Berman’s debut recalls the beloved teen and adult novels of Judy Blume, both in topic and prose style: simple, powerful, unafraid to confront serious issues." — Kirkus Reviews

"Berman entices readers with this coming-of-age tale of two girls...This story of facing life’s difficulties is most memorable because of Berman’s excellently crafted, multifaceted characters." — Publishers Weekly

“Berman’s command of prose is astounding. The more you read, the more difficult it is to believe that this is a debut novel... Charged with hope, longing, an unexpected sensuality, and a bruised tenderness, Perennials is a book you should most definitely put near the top of your reading list.” — Pop Dust
