"A quintessential teen book about trying to navigate high school and find some semblance of belonging . . . I am so happy that Finding My Voice is finding new life for a whole new generation of readers."
--Kat Cho, author of Wicked Fox (from the Foreword)

"Timeless . . . [for] readers who love coming of age stories, especially those that cover deeper topics such as bullying, peer pressure, and different cultures."
--Young Adult Books Central

"A beautifully written coming-of-age romance about a high school senior's final months in her small, racist hometown."

"A staple that deserves permanent space on your bookshelf."
--Bitch Media

"This OwnVoices story still resonates with its lessons on small-town insularity, friendship and first love."
--Minneapolis Star Tribune

"Honestly rendered, and never didactic, the story allows readers first to flinch in recognition and then to look into their own hearts."
--Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

Praise for Marie Myung-Ok Lee
"That rare book, that rare page-turner, the one you cannot put down, the one you will suspend washing the laundry for or cooking breakfast for. It is the novel you will open and read in one urgent breath as you take in the storyteller's compelling tale of lives felt long after the book's end as you turn off the light to sleep."
--Lois-Ann Yamanaka, author of Wild Meat and the Bully Burgers
