Reviews

"Shay's voice is so genuine -- she practically walks off the page. This is an important book, and an incredible debut."--Erin Entrada Kelly, Newbery Medal-winning author of Hello, Universe
"Full of heart and truth"--Angie Thomas, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Hate U Give
"Ramée effectively portrays the importance of the Black Lives Matter movement and the difficulty of navigating complex social situations while conveying universal middle school questions about friendship, first crushes, and identity. Shay's journey is an authentic and engaging political and personal awakening."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Shayla navigates the world of middle school and the troubled world beyond with wit and endless heart. A timely, funny, and unforgettable debut about friendship, facing your fears, and standing up for what's right."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Reminiscent in writing style to works by Lauren Myracle and Jason Reynolds, this novel [shows] Shayla's typical middle school problems, then switches to the very specific problems she faces as a young black girl in America...[For] middle grade readers who aren't yet ready for Thomas's The Hate U Give."--School Library Journal (starred review)
"Shayla's narration is both sympathetic and acutely realistic... this is a sensitive exploration of contemporary racism and inequity for a readership not ready for Thomas' The Hate U Give."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Gripping from the opening line, A Good Kind of Trouble is a tender, insightful, and unique look at what it means to stand up for what you believe in and be brave. Shay is the type of heroine who inspires us all to take a stand."--Jay Coles, author of Tyler Johnson Was Here
