." . . the real topic here is what girls (or women) who want to be involved in a field usually reserved for boys (or men) will have to endure . . . the empowerment message comes through loud and clear." - Kirkus Reviews
"What I appreciate about this book is the strong and supportive relationship Marty has with her friends and her mother (they even have their own signs!) and the way the book tackles emotion. Marty navigates a range of strong emotions and it's great for young readers to witness a positive role model handle everything from fear and anger to doubt, anxiety, and insecurity." --Erika Crowl - Children's writer
