"Poignant. . . this is an important addition to the small field of books featuring an intersex character." --School Library Journal

"Informative without being either dry or sensationalistic . . . . This necessary story is warmly told." --Kirkus Reviews

"Birdsall doesn't shy away from the complexity of Alyx's condition . . . creating an unconventional character with whom teens can relate [sic]." --Booklist

"Birdsall demonstrates a remarkable talent for original storytelling . . . . As thoughtful and thought-provoking as it is solidly entertaining from beginning to end, Double Exposure is very highly recommended." --Midwest Book Review/Reviewer's Bookwatch

"[Double Exposure] is as valuable for its portrayal of the effects of bullying as for its insights into the experience of being intersex. It belongs in any collection that serves teen readers." --ALA's Gay Lesbian Bisexual Transgender Round Table/GLBT Reviews

"Heart wrenching . . . . the powerful coming-of-age novel reflects the triumph of acceptance and equality with the help of unconditional love and support. A simply stunning yet stimulating work of art." --Planet London

"A slam dunk" --Wisconsin Gazette

"A novel that takes you into the heart of a character and makes you root for her until the very end." --Teaching Tolerance

"Double Exposure is a poignant, gut-punch of a novel, timely, and full of flashes of dark wit . . . Highly recommended for LGBTQ teens and allies alike. I adored this book!" --Jenn Crowell, author of Necessary Madness

"Goes above and beyond the ordinary . . . . recommended for anyone who enjoys well-written, timely YA." --Out in Print

"Double Exposure gives the reader double what most novels do, portraying characters that are both bold and tender, raising questions that make you both think and feel deeply, and transporting you into a story that both entertains and inspires. Double thumbs up from me!" --Alex Sanchez, author of Rainbow Boys and Boyfriends with Girlfriends

"Told in clear, straightforward prose, this riveting story of Alyx, and the gauntlet she has to run in order to discover who she truly is, shines a brilliant light on the truth that we are all queer in some way. All of us. In Double Exposure, Bridget Birdsall has given us a story that is courageous, intense and full of heart. It's a score from the outside, and everyone who reads it wins!" --Kathi Appelt, author of the Newberry Honor winner The Underneath, Keeper, and The True Blue Scouts of Sugar Man Swamp

"Double Exposure is an important book, the kind that just might save a teen's life. Alyx captured my heart on page one and never let it go. All Alyx wants is to be herself. Which is what any teen wants. And all teens deserve. Bridget Birdsall has done a wonderful job of capturing a teen's longing, anguish, courage, and determination. Read this book. It will break your heart--and heal it." --Lesléa Newman, author of October Mourning: A song for Matthew Shepard

"This powerful coming of age story is refreshingly unique, yet wonderfully universal in its portrayal of what it means to be different. With both realism and sensitivity, Bridget Birdsall depicts the tremendous courage required for Alyx to be true to herself. Double Exposure is a triumphant novel about friendship and self-acceptance." --Yvonne Ventresca, author of Pandemic

"Double Exposure is an important story, poignant and compelling. And it's a great basketball story as well, rising out of a deep knowledge of the sport. Bridget Birdsall is a writer to watch!" --Marion Dane Bauer, Newbery Honor-winning author of On My Honor

"Intersexuality got the highbrow treatment in Jeffrey Eugenides' Middlesex, but when it comes to educating the masses, some may want a newer, well-written teenage story -- such as . . . Bridget Birdsall's Double Exposure."
