"Jackson deftly chronicles the timely story of bold young talent gone too soon and the survivors who struggle to keep it alive...Jackson scores a bull's-eye with her passionate homage to black city life in the late '90s, yet it's her earnest takes on creativity, love, and loss that are timeless."-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"
"Jackson repeatedly proves that she is a titan among her peers, and her latest novel is no exception...Jackson weaves the three points of view together seamlessly, creating richly drawn and authentically real teens characters. Hip-hop is more than a musical genre; it's a culture and a way of life. Jackson embraces that truth and explores it with uninhibited style in her new novel."-- "Booklist (starred review)"
"Exceptional storytelling, well-crafted, true-to-life dialogue, and the richly drawn Brooklyn landscape will draw readers into this fast-paced blend of mystery, budding romance, and social commentary."-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"
