"Huber's irreverent humor makes her provocative "health insurance memoir" worth a read."--Karen Springen, Booklist Online--Karen Springen"Booklist Online" (08/30/2010)
"This book illustrates, in a way that mere political rhetoric cannot, how the lack of accessible, affordable medical care negatively affects everyone on a personal, emotional and economic scale."--Joan Hanna, Author Exposure--Joan Hanna"Author Exposure" (10/08/2010)
"Huber's sure-footed prose considers how deeply connected an individual's health is to being both rooted and free, confident or fearful of securing even the most routine treatment. Once covered, she is safe under that blanket of care, and wise enough to understand that covers are easily blown, or blown away."--Lisa Romeo, ForeWord Reviews--Lisa Romeo "ForeWord Reviews "
"What I found so compelling about Huber's story is her ability to make the personal resonate so much more loudly than the political ideas or theories, while capably insuring that her own story underscores her political stance on health care. I found myself wanting to send copies to every member of the House and Senate."--Sarah Werthan, Brevity Book Reviews--Sarah Werthan "Brevity Book Reviews "
"Cover Me is the best kind of memoir; it is engaging, enraging, tragic and funny. Fortunately, laughter as medicine is one thing the insurance companies have not yet managed to deny."--T. Tamara Weinstein, Elevate Difference-- (09/15/2010)
"In this humorous and affecting memoir, Huber details her experiences navigating the American health care system, and brings a necessary dose of reality to the political debates and propaganda surrounding health care reform."--Women & Children First--Women & Children First (11/01/2010)
