People Magazine says “Four friends bond at Smith College and stumble toward adulthood in Sullivan’s intelligent, diverting debut.” (6.29.09)

Commencement is a Chicago Tribune Editor’s Choice: “Sullivan is a keen observer, with a wry sense of humor, and the book glides along like a “Sex and the City” episode — with more Gloria Steinem than Jimmy Choo.” (8.8.09)
