Reviews

"In this impressive debut novel set in 1964, Rodman infuses the familiar struggle of the new girl in town with immediacy, danger and historical relevance. . . . Whether or not readers are familiar with civil rights, they are likely to find this novel memorable because it so strikingly identifies the bravery, cruelty and vulnerability of characters their own age." --Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"The honesty of Alice's narrative moves this beyond docu-novel...The real tension is whether Alice can move from being bystander to standing up for what she believes. Rodman shows how hard it is." --Booklist

"Rich in detail and lively writing. An important addition to the field." --Kirkus Reviews

"Every once in a while, we read a book that changes the way we view the world and how we treat others. For some readers, Yankee Girl just might be that book." --The Reading Teacher

"Written in clear language . . . the message is strong." --Voice of Youth Advocates
