"Tingle's story draws from a Choctaw story about No Name, a boy who also has a difficult relationship with his father. I especially like the parts of the story where Danny and his friend, Johnny, talk about the Choctaw Nation and water rights...Gritty, real stories, of our daily lives in 2014 are too few and far between. We need more books like Tingle's No Name. Get a copy for your library. Choose your framework for sharing it: it is a basketball story; it is a realistic story of alcoholism; it is a story about the Choctaw people."-- "American Indians in Children's Literature"
"In a simply but lyrically told tale, a Choctaw boy builds himself a hole in the ground to hide from his alcoholic father...Bobby's mixed emotions toward his own flawed father, and his father's toward him, are conveyed in straightforward yet revealing lines of dialogue and first-person narration...Expressive and many-layered."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
