Reviews

An intensely significant story... -- Sundee T. Frazier, winner of the ALA 2008 Coretta Scott King/John Steptoe New Talent Award
This is an essential story that has been waiting for its time and its teller. A brave and brilliant accomplishment. -- Helen Frost, Printz Honor Award-winning author of Spinning Through the Universe
Vividly, poignantly, and without compromise, Kekla Magoon takes us to the heart of a world in the messy business of monumental change. The Rock and the River is an extraordinary book that brings unflinchingly to life an extraordinary moment in time. -- Tim Wynne-Jones, author of Rex Zero and the End of the World
What a rich and passionate debut novel! With both intensity and humor, the story that unfolds is at once riveting, disquieting, and ultimately most satisfying. -- Ellen Levine, Caldecott Honor Award-winning author of Henry's Freedom Box
This explosive coming-of-age story, taut with tension and protest, propelled me along like the river of its title. Magoon is most certainly a new and serious talent to watch. An intensely significant story of emotional and historical depth that resonates with relevancy for our age. -- Sundee T. Frazier, winner of the ALA 2008 Coretta Scott King/John Steptoe New Talent Award for Brendan Buckley's Universe and Everything in It
