Early praise for Mother in the Dark:

"Kayla Maiuri has written a freshly imagined, emotionally precise novel about a family. Here is an honest book rich in detail and empathy. Here is an exciting new voice in fiction." —Sam Lipsyte, author of The Fun Parts and The Ask 

"There is much to admire in this beautifully written, unsentimental, deeply knowing novel. Maiuri is wise beyond her years, and fearless in her exploration of the ways that mothers and daughters are uniquely equipped to hurt each other." —Elissa Schappell, author of Blueprints for Building Better Girls
