Reviews

A New York Times Bestseller

"[Ebony-Grace's] boundless faith in her dreams also brings to mind another high-flying science enthusiast who once advised, 'Never be limited by other people's imaginations.' That speaker was Mae C. Jemison, an engineer, medical doctor, astronaut, and the first African American woman to go into space."--New York Times Book Review

"Filled with rich imaginative scenes and comics-style illustrations, this book will truly transport its readers to another world."--Booklist

"Highlights the importance of imagination and learning to celebrate what it means to be different in a world that demands conformity."--Horn Book

"Zoboi excels at resurrecting 1980s Harlem in her middle grade debut, expertly sprinkling in nostalgia-fueled references to break dancing, rap battles, and the rise of female MCs."--Publishers Weekly
