"Reminiscent of Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye, but appropriate for a much younger audience."

-- "New York Times"

"With its relatable and sympathetic protagonist, complex setting, and exceptional emotional range, this title is easy to recommend."

-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

"Williams takes readers through an emotional, painful, yet still hopeful adolescent journey...[A] story that may be all too familiar for too many and one that needed telling."

-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"
