* "Noted for her fantasy and science fiction for adults, Hopkinson jumps triumphantly to teen literature. . . . Rich in voice, humor and dazzling imagery, studded with edgy ideas and wildly original, this multicultural mashup--like its heroine--defies category."--"Kirkus Reviews", *STARRED
* "Hopkinson, who grew up in the Caribbean, mixes Jamaican legends, fairy tales, and sheer imagination to create this wildly inventive story that also skillfully addresses essential teen subjects: change, race, identity, love, and understanding cultural differences. Labels are impossible here, so just hand this refreshingly original treat to teens eager for something completely different."--"Booklist", *STAR
* "Mixing mythology and massively -surreal events, adult fantasy author Hop-kinson (The Salt Roads) explores questions of identity and image in her YA debut, set against the backdrop of a world gone mad. . . . Hopkinson's use of language and imagery is almost magical, and her characters add much-appreciated diversity to the genre."--"Publishers Weekly", *STAR
"[Scotch] proves to be a compelling anchor for a tale in which, for a while at least, it seems that literally anything can happen. Hopkinson's joy of invention is palpable, and despite its darker edges, it's that joy in the possibilities of the imagination that I hope comes through to younger readers. Come to think of it, we could all use a dose of it."--"Locus"
