Reviews

"By turns surprising, poetic, and stark, The Story That Cannot Be Told is one that should most certainly be read."--Alan Gratz, New York Times bestselling author of Refugee
"Stories have immense power to change lives. J. Kasper Kramer's beautiful novel is proof of that. A compelling story of a history that should never be forgotten."--New York Times bestselling author Jennifer A. Nielsen
* "Kramer's debut novel is rich with connections to today's world while easily sidestepping the pitfall of heavy-handedness. Ileana is a charming, complex character who stumbles and makes mistakes as she builds up confidence, bravery, and wisdom against a wonderfully imagined backdrop populated with fascinating secondary characters. . . . A thrilling, emotional tale of one girl's experience of the fall of Communism in Romania."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"Romanian fairy tales and folktales are intertwined with historical fiction to create a tale rich in imagery, emotion, and strength when it's most needed."--School Library Connection
"Kramer captures the tense, frightening atmosphere in the months preceding the Romanian Revolution, as well as the different forms of bravery that went into toppling an oppressive government. . . . An affecting account of a historic event characterized by monsters, hope, and the power of words."--Booklist
* "Mesmerizing."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
