Reviews

"What is art if not a sword? With We Are the Ashes, We Are the Fire, Joy McCullough wields and strikes her sharp-edged, finely honed blade. A fierce beauty."--Elana K. Arnold, Printz Honoree and National Book Award Finalist

★"Intense, unrelenting, and inspiring."--Kirkus, starred review

★"McCullough emphatically confronts the toll that sexual violence takes and deftly questions who gets to control history's narrative."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

★"McCullough borrows judiciously from the headlines, and readers will find her story all the more affecting because of its seemingly eternal relevance."--Booklist, starred review

★"Unforgettable.... A must read."--SLC, starred review

"A meditation on the power of uncovering past heroines, especially for young women who are looking for strength."--Bitch Magazine
