Reviews

"Hendrickson's debut novel paints a gripping account of a courageous young man rising above evil." -- Booklist

"A worthy, if heartwrenching read.... The best of humanity is explored -- and some of the worst, exposed. It is very readable, written with a clear and powerful voice, and is engaging from beginning to end." -- Long and Short Reviews(four stars)

"One of the most interesting books I've read this year, a one-of-a-kind book." -- Reading in Color

"Cracking the Ice scores the literary equivalent of a hat-trick: funny, harrowing and finally, heartfelt. This book is a winner." --Greg Neri, author of Yummy: the Last Days of a Southside Shorty, a 2011 Coretta Scott King Honor book

"I started reading Cracking the Ice and could not put it down. Jessie Stackhouse's generosity, hope, and intelligence touched my heart.... Usually I go to bed early; however, I kept reading Cracking the Ice until I turned to the last page." --Joyce Carol Thomas, National Book Award and American Book Award winner.

"A compelling, civil rights tale of a young man's coming of age on the ice. Hendrickson personalizes history with unforgettable characters." --Jewell Parker Rhodes, author of Ninth Ward, a 2011 Coretta Scott King Honor book
