Reviews

"Kidd writes with insight and restraint, creating a richly layered opus that hits every note to perfection Beautifully written and earnestly delivered, the novel rolls to an inexorable, stunning conclusion readers won't soon forget." Kirkus Reviews, starred review, July 15, 2015"
"Billie comes to grips with her own prejudices, inherited from her parents, in a way that is both lyrical and honest. In a year in which news events have made it clear that the civil rights movement is far from over, titles like Kidd's have special resonance." Booklist, starred review, September 1, 2015
"Kidd's writing is clear and direct, if not subtle, and he raises many hard questions with nuance and with hope." School Library Journal, September 1, 2015
