Reviews

"Matt is a wonderfully sympathetic, multidimensional character whose voice is a perfect match for the material and whose relationships with Love and Mr. Ray--also a fascinating character--are beautifully realized. This quiet story is clearly a winner." -Booklist
"The realistic setting and character-driven tale keeps readers turning the pages of this winner." -School Library Journal
"A vivid, satisfying and ultimately upbeat tale of grief, redemption and grace." -Kirkus Reviews
*"Reynolds' work here makes him a fine heir to the Walter Dean Myers tradition of loving storytelling that captures the heart and humor of multigenerational black urban experience." -Bulletin, STARRED REVIEW
