Its story is beautifully captured in the book's smooth pacing and brief paragraphs. Readers will follow its journey from that march as it becomes both a monument to mourning and a means of changing the stigma surrounding HIV and AIDS... the book is pretty darn impressive. Storytelling and history, beautifully stitched together.

This neatly woven picture book biography features Cleve Jones (b. 1954), a white gay man who moved to San Francisco, became a mentee of Harvey Milk, and eventually came up with the idea for the AIDS Memorial Quilt. Sanders emphasizes the quilt theme throughout... A rhythmic poem by Sanders, presented in full via the ample back matter, ties this richly informative book together.-- "STARRED REVIEW, Publishers Weekly"
