I Smile Back
"[Koppelman’s] brave and challenging look beyond appearances of beauty to the ugly reality of a disturbed mind will remain with readers long after they’ve finished the book. Highly recommended."
A Mouthful of Air
"This is a story so convincing that never again will you pass a new mother on the street without wondering what's behind her mouthful of smiles."
—Judy D’Mello, The New York Observer
