Reviews
A visceral window into a survivor's childhood and a testament to the enduring influence of unconditional love.-- "Kirkus Reviews"
Ogle pays clear-eyed tribute to his maternal abuela while covering heavy topics such as child abuse, financial precarity, and racism in this searing verse memoir-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"
The humor, reflection, and heart present in these pages remind readers to cherish their bonds with their loved ones and that small moments can last a lifetime.-- "Booklist"
The magnitude of intergenerational relationships, deep connections, and acceptance shine in Ogle's foreword and poems, which are clearly love letters to his abuela, captured like fireflies in a jar. A must-purchase for all YA nonfiction collections, Ogle's work speaks directly to what so many young people experience and offers them hope.-- "School Library Journal (starred review)"
