What the best literature for young readers can be-simple, elegant language crafted to tell a story as full and rich as life itself. Eminently memorable.-- "Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW"
Flashbacks involving the effects of war and poverty on communities and families drive this fast-paced and heart-wrenching narrative, which deals honestly with countless harsh realities.-- "Publishers Weekly Online"
Flashbacks to each character's personal story are interwoven with the present-tense violence, prejudice, kindness, and community that the young characters find on their journey.--Hazel Rochman "Booklist"
Ellis' young readers love her because she speaks to them as intelligent, empathetic beings who will soon have agency in the world, and in No Safe Place, this gift is still powerfully evident.--Emily Donaldson "Quill & Quire, STARRED REVIEW"
This novel moves fast and furiously...exciting and moving.--Meredith Toumayan "School Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW"
