"Myers livens up the beach read genre with a spirited main character and a humourous story about finding your place again after getting off course. Romance is a vital element of the summer camp narrative and Myers delivers with considerable wit...Jesse’s romantic exploits range from cringe-worthy to steamy. And through it all, Jesse remains her authentic self, proving that while being with someone is wonderful, she is not someone who needs a relationship to complete her." Amy Mathers, Children's Book Reviews, The National Reading Campaign

Praise for BUTTERFLIES DON'T LIE
"This is a blithe and breezy tale of summer and self-discovery. Despite her initial self-absorption, Kelsey emerges as a relatable protagonist who grapples with fears and insecurities that are both typical and uniquely her own." Atlantic Books Today, Lisa Doucet co-manager of Woozles Children’s Bookstore in Halifax
"While Butterflies Don't Lie may not be an emotionally shattering love story, it's as a first love, a summer love should be: light-hearted, playful, absurd, tenuous, and promising. And B. R. Myers
gets it all right." CanLit for Little Canadians, Helen Kubiw, teacher-librarian, review, promoter of great Canadian reading for young people
"Butterflies Don’t Lie’ is a cute novel about a teenager’s first love. It is an incredibly endearing story that I would recommend to anyone from the ages thirteen and up, easily relatable to the feelings we have or have had." Edward's Book Club

"Myers’ characters, all with very human flaws, are hard not to love from the start. They’ll experience Kelsey’s firsts like they’re their own: first love, first broken heart, first job, first time drinking, and the first time standing up to her parents. Kelsey is easy to relate to, and readers will surely root for her even when her choices are cringe worthy...readers will be left hoping there’s a sequel to come." CM Magazine, highly recommended, 4/4 stars
