"a tremendously affecting novel"--Kirkus Reviews "March 2015 "
* "will linger with readers"--Publisher's Weekly - Starred Review "March 2015 "
"a heartrending and honest portrayal"--VOYA "June 2015 "
"An eye-opening exploration of the all-too-real horrors of sex trafficking."--The Horn Book "July/August 2015 "
* "An important work that should be an essential part of library collections"--School Library Journal - Starred Review "March 2015 "
"Riveting, eye-opening and poignant, Dime is an unnervingly real portrait of life on the streets. It's a world where pimps use charm, cunning and violence to exert gradual - then total - control over vulnerable girls. Until Dime, a girl nearly broken by her situation, somehow finds an exit. If not for herself, at least before it's too late for someone even more defenseless than she is. Unforgettable."--Patricia McCormick, Author of Never Fall Down
* "gritty, graphic, and shatteringly painful to read...a masterfully told, unforgettable tale of what hope looks like in desperate
circumstances, and of the struggle to find power in one's voice."--Booklist - Starred Review "April 15, 2015 "
"[Dime's] passion for books, her desperate need for love, and the numbing resignation that drives her to courageous action make her a hero who can't fail to make readers open their eyes, no matter how searing the vision may be"--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "September 2015 "
