Reviews

"[A] contemporary feminist debut. . . . A timely and absorbing character study of a sexual assault survivor." --Kirkus Reviews

"[Kress] renders Zoe's trauma unflinchingly and compassionately, making this a worthwhile look at sexism and the healing power of speaking out--as well as a passionate love letter to an underappreciated sport." --Publishers Weekly

"Readers will cheer for Zoe and her -team---on and off the field." --School Library Journal

"Kress' engrossing debut is all about agency, and in addition to frequent game play-by-plays that will appeal to fans of sports novels, this will make an empowering addition to #MeToo collections." --Booklist

"Kress's fierce characters show that, together, girls can be something bigger. Their story shows how loyalty, dedication, and an occasional bent rule can make the world a better place." --Adrienne Kisner, author of Six Angry Girls and Dear Rachel Maddow

"Vibrant, daring, and deep, Dangerous Play is both a thrilling ride and a profound exploration of female friendship, rape culture, and the difficulty of doing the right thing in a world built on wrongs. An unflinching and empowering debut." --Corey Ann Haydu, author of Ever Cursed

"I want to put this book in the hands of every teenager I know. For anyone - especially any girl - who needs to find the power that comes from speaking up and speaking out, this gorgeous debut is a game-changer." --Rachel Person, Northshire Bookstore, Saratoga Springs
