"English returns to Carver Elementary, the setting of her Nikka and Deja books, in this strong kickoff to her Carver Chronicles series. Freeman's upbeat spot illustrations and English's accessible storytelling target the book to emerging independent readers."
--Booklist "Chapter book readers have few options if they want to read about urban boys of color; here's hoping for more about Gavin and his friends."
