Reviews

"A blistering look at a girl who, when her eyes are opened by an injustice, reacts by taking action.... Readers will be glad for this take from two powerhouse creators."--ALA Booklist
"Marin's transformation into a clear-eyed young activist will inspire teens...this fast-paced narrative introduces the complexities of intersectionality, identifies the insidious impact of rape culture, and encourages readers to take a stand against everyday injustices."--School Library Journal
"The authors write a convincing teen exploring the complex, frequently sexist social norms that girls and women navigate daily."--Publishers Weekly
An engrossing and engaging read, filled with dynamic characters. While Marin's is a fight that should never be necessary, her experience is one that many women and girls will unfortunately relate to. A powerful story of a girl determined to make others look her in the eyes and listen.--Associated Press
