"This book--with its celebration of girl power, a main character who forces readers to question religious stereotypes, and a timely message about the importance of coming together as a community to Fight Back against prejudice--deserves a place on every library shelf." -- Padma Venkatraman, Walter Award Winning Author of The Bridge Home

"Powerful. . . will show readers they are not alone when facing racism and hate and that standing together in support of one another provides hope for the future." -- Booklist

"The attention-grabbing writing style and intensifying pace suit the storyline, and characters develop in plausible ways. Hope is interjected into the serious tone as Black, Jewish, and Chinese classmates, among others, share their experiences and help Aaliyah and her friends take action against racism and xenophobia. This group of committed friends will win readers' hearts." -- Kirkus Reviews

"This fearless, compelling story of trauma, solidarity and testing which rules are made to be broken is perfect for fans of Patrice Lawrence and Muhammad Khan." -- The Guardian
