"Gisele's pain, articulated by double-page spreads of her wide, pale blue face shedding a multifaceted crystal tear through powerful vellum page turns, will feel acute and familiar to adolescents. Will reach both small and older readers struggling to conceal, manage, and express complicated inner worlds." -Kirkus Reviews
"Concept and form are mirrored in Beatrice Alemagna's "Child of Glass," as she uses both transparencies and traditional pages to tell the story of a fragile yet resilient girl. Alemagna's layered and highly textured drawings create a powerful sense of fluidity between the interior and exterior worlds. To turn the pages of this book is to witness transformation in real time." The 2019 New York Times/New York Public Library Best Illustrated Children's Books List
