Reviews

"Recovering from childhood polio, Rowan makes an unlikely but likeable heroine as she battles the horrific force of the early 20th century eugenics movement in the US. An unsettling, adventurous debut which comes eerily close to difficult truth."
Elizabeth Wein, Printz Honor-winning author of "Code Name Verity"



"Sure to spark difficult but necessary discussions." Kirkus Reviews, December 15, 2015
"Moger adeptly handles the novel's historical aspects and wisely avoids a too-neat resolution, given that eugenic beliefs and forced sterilizations persisted in this country long after Rowan's story ends. It's an engaging introduction to a rarely discussed piece of history." Publishers Weekly, February 2, 2016
"Moger crafts likable characters who mature over the course of the book. Readers will enjoy the mystery as it mounts in the final chapters. This book is an engaging work of historical fiction that would be a great addition for any middle school library." School Library Journal, February 2016
"Though readers will hungrily rush to the finish, this debut novel's poignant themes perseverance, sacrifice, lineage, and loyalty are sure to linger long past the final page." Booklist, January 1, 2016"
