Reviews

*"A moving rendition that stands on its own."--Kirkus, starred review
*"Reynolds's words paint pictures of their own in this tragic yet poignant illustrated tale that offers no answers to the seemingly ยญimpossible choices some communities face."--School Library Journal, starred review
*"Far more than just an illustration of the events of the novel, Novgorodoff's iteration powerfully cultivates the tone and mood of its source material, demonstrating just how effective and artful comics can be."--Booklist, starred review
*"Novgorodoff's watercolors, which bleed at the edges like pavement stains, match the text in mood and fluency, and by putting faces to characters, they tacitly untangle the web of revenge killings and mistaken identities foundational to the plot."--BCCB, starred review
