Reviews

★ A compact, urgent, and divine novel. --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

★ Emezi once again deftly conjures an ethereal world in which hope is a practice, teen voice and choice are uplifted, and art is validated and lauded as a form of resistance. --SLJ, starred review

★ [A] timely... story with vivacious queer characters of color who have the agency to define the future for themselves and their city. --Publishers Weekly, starred review

Accomplished in its use of uneasily dreamy language. --The Horn Book

Mesmerizing from start to finish. --Booklist
