ALLA Alabama Authors Awards Best Teen Book of the Year
Rise: A Feminist Book Project List Honoree

"Millie's unapologetic battle against sexism is inspiring, and Tag's reckoning with his privilege is heartening. Weighty issues and the quirky rivals-to-lovers romance are given equal attention . . . An unusual, thought-provoking take on advocating for oneself and others." --Kirkus Reviews

"Both main characters are well-developed as individuals within a novel that explores the hostility, harassment, and other challenges faced by many girls who choose to enter the traditionally male-dominated world of debating. Drawing readers into that sphere, this detailed, engaging story delivers both happiness and justice in the end." --Booklist

"PW contributor and former high school competitor Doll's (Unclaimed Baggage) passion for debate is genuine and infectious, and the protagonists' alternating perspectives make for a persuasive read." --Publishers Weekly

"Doll's -well-developed inspirational character arcs show Millie's and Tag's separate journeys to become voices for change. Additional depth is provided by edifying, and sometimes playful, footnotes. Informed by her own high school debate experience, Doll includes an extensive personal note that adds to the authenticity of issues explored in the novel." --School Library Journal
