Reviews

"This is a model of thoughtful presentation of an uncomfortable subject, designed to attract middle-grade and middle school readers with its extremes in order to keep their attention while simultaneously helping them feel empowered to do something about the issues. A surprisingly deep and successful dive." -- Kirkus Reviews
