Reviews

"Gloriously figurative language...brilliantly evokes both time and place...both beautiful and emotionally honest, both funny and piercingly sad."
-- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"A powerful tale of friendship and coming-of-age...haunting combination of fact and fiction has a powerful and tragic climax."
-- Booklist (starred review)

"An evocative novel...with fully developed, memorable characters...fascinating, little-known piece of history...will leave a powerful impression on readers." -- School Library Journal (starred review)

"Schmidt fictionalizes a true event... vividly realized...fully credible...subtly drawn."
-- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Historical incident ignites a rich novel...a drama that examines the best and worst of humanity." -- Horn Book Magazine
