Reviews
"[P]owerful... affecting and harrowing."--Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

"A devastating voice, demanding and raw . . . an accomplished work of art."--The Los Angeles Times

"The breathtaking velocity and visceral power of her prose soars off the page...The Kid gives us a story and a narrative voice which, like his mother's before him, should definitely be heard."--The Guardian (UK)

"[Sapphire] remains fearlessly committed to telling uncomfortable truths... Like Push, The Kid is deeply moving and unflinching."--Essence

"The Kid's unflinching authenticity makes it tough yet ultimately rewarding to read."--People

"Steely-eyed, full-frontal daring."--Philadelphia Inquirer
