"Stevenson's debut novel expertly handles complex issues around race and ethnic identity without seeming pedantic. A welcome addition to a rapidly evolving genre of multiethnic young adult literature." --School Library Journal
"Asha is engaging and the depiction of her journey--a realistic mess of vague hopes, serendipitous events, serious missteps and gutsy choices--compellingly original." --Kirkus Reviews
"Young readers facing real life racism are sure to be inspired by the story." --Foreword Magazine
"This coming-of-age story is craftily written, fast paced and delivers a message of doing the right thing under difficult circumstances. The Latte Rebellion is a wonderful, conceptual story from a new author with strong promise of becoming established in the YA genre." --VOYA
"The portrayal of Asha's initially misguided but relatable social awakening is so honest that readers will find themselves first cringing at her efforts, then cheering her on." --Booklist
"[The Latte Rebellion] is more than the typical high school story. [It] will strike a chord with those students who are trying to find their place in society." --Library Media Connection
"A thoughtful taste of one girl's attempt at being a world-traveling, latte-drinking, singularly awesome individual in a world determined to herd her into being classified as either coffee or milk." --Tanita S. Davis, author of Mare's War, A Coretta Scott King Honor Book
