"Jiménez has painted an authentic picture of puberty with a light touch that is both respectful and endearing. Godoy's animated drawings, economical and evocative, add to the overall magic." --Linda Schuyler, co-creator and executive producer of the Degrassi franchise

"Full of humor and heart, The Street Belongs to Us is a beautiful and subversively queer story that probes the depths of intertwined human loss and connection." --Cory Silverberg, author of Sex Is a Funny Word

"The Street Belongs to Us magically addresses gender, grief, pain, longing, and illness, all with a writing cadence that makes us love each character like family." --Joie Lamar, author of Mambo Lips: A Memoir of a Girl Who Found Strength in Being Different

"The Street Belongs to Us creates a complex, rich, and beautiful world. Jiménez shows us the beauty and importance of gender diversity and how kids can navigate the difficult and exciting changes that lie ahead." --Lisa Selin Davis, author of Tomboy: The Surprising History of Girls Who Dare to be Different
