She has been a Lannan Fellow, a Guggenheim Fellow and a Witter Bynner Fellow. Her numerous awards include a Lavan Award from the Academy of American Poets, the Isabella Gardner Poetry Award from BOA, the Lee Bennett Hopkins Poetry Award, the Patterson Poetry Prize, the Robert Creeley Prize and the Betty Prize from Poets House for her service to poetry.

--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Incisive and unsparing, Nye's poems will buzz in readers' brains long after reading them."

"On every page, Shihab Nye's insistent call is the same: people, all people, deserve to live safe and healthy lives, free from fear and violence. She mourns, rages, takes politicians to task, but always lands on the side of compassion."
--Shelf Awareness

"While Naomi Shihab Nye's newest book of poetry offers no easy answers, its questions push well beyond the margin of the pages. What happens when we're reminded not just of human rights injustices but of the quotidian moments in the lives of those affected? Reminded that they too live in this very modern world, with wants and needs as expansive and equally as simple as our own?"
--World Literarure Today

"From her own understanding and research, her father's stories and information gleaned from Janna's posts, Nye creates poetry that imagines the turbulent life of a little girl in a world of war and injustice."
--Ms. Magazine

"This book is more than a book of poems. It is a call for awakening."
--Lone Star Literary Life

"This poet, always America's sweetheart, has shared her life with us through her career, warmth, and wisdom -- earning our validation -- and now, even more, she makes emotion and the world meld, to give an in-depth analysis of her besieged land, letting us know how it appears from inside. In connecting the land and the sea, possibilities and tragedies, poetry reaches the high bar."
--Washington Independent Review of Books
