Reviews

"The Boston Globe" Many books are described as absorbing, but this one is, truly, from its very first paragraph.
Nikki Giovanni "The New York Times Book Review" Virginia Hamilton has joined the forces of hope with the forces of dreams to forge a powerful story.
"Chicago Sun Times" The style is haunting and musical, and the characters walk through the reader's mind long after the book is over.
"Booklist" A unique experience for mature readers.
"Horn Book Magazine" ...A memorable picture of a young boy's growing awareness of himself and his surroundings.
"Kansas City Star" You'll cheat yourself if you assume this one is only for children.
