    Press

    Tenderly observed coming-of-age story, laced with careful insights about femininity and girlhood that are perhaps even more potent in being informed by Mendoza’s thoughtful outsider’s perspective.

    Jessica Kiang, Variety

    An atmosphere of witchy intimacy which makes stories about sisters particularly alluring.
