Reviews

Blending teen romance with complex questions of identity, equality, and censorship, this is an excellent choice for most collections.
--School Library Journal (starred review)

In a time when #ownvoices stories are rising in popularity among YA readers, this brings an insightful story to the conversation...this is truly a thought-provoking and educational novel.
--Booklist

Louise...is believable in her own missteps, and her younger brother's moral quandary--he's unsure if he wants to stay in the play after finding out about L. Frank Baum's virulent anti-Native prejudice--is compellingly explored...a revealing account of a bigotry experience that sometimes gets overshadowed by others, though, and readers will sympathize with Louise's frustrations.
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Smith effectively presents the continuous microaggressions Lou faces as a young Native woman alongside the central narrative arc of the school play.
--The Horn Book

Smith depicts the Wolfes' warm family life as a stable foundation as Hughie and Lou each confront challenges, and she is especially successful at portraying the camaraderie and conflicts of the newspaper staff...a thought-provoking work of realistic teen fiction.
