With a voice that is fresh, unique, and wry, Pratima Cranse, in her compelling debut, ALL THE MAJOR CONSTELLATIONS, captures the sexual frustrations, angst, and heartache of a young man on the brink of college.

A stellar voice to watch. Starred Review.
- Kirkus Reviews
Pratima Cranse's writing is wise, funny, provocative, beautiful, and heartbreaking. So are her characters. So is this book.
- Sam J. Miller, author of THE ART OF STARVING
Adolescents will relate to Andrew’s exploration of religion and a world bigger than himself. Cranse creates an atmosphere where characters are safe to find humor in the face of tragedy and question the paths laid before them. VERDICT-- Older fans of realistic fiction will enjoy riding along with Andrew.–Carrie Fox, South Park High School, PA
