Reviews

"A moving tale of a kid who may have made a mistake but who still deserves the modest future he seeks. Refreshingly avoids cliché." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)

"Masterful." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Myers creates a nuanced, realistic portrait of a teen dealing with incarceration and violence. Myers gets his voice just right." -- Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)
