Praise

Starred Review, The Horn Book Magazine
“Sarcone-Roach displays a discipline not always seen in books about the environment; she allows her theme of reuse and recycling to emerge naturally from a fine story and lets readers draw their own conclusions without adding a heavy-handed one of her own.”

The New York Times Book Review:
“Sarcone-Roach guides us to Jessie’s final destination with energy, style, and charm. Only a subway rider (as the author most definitely is) could have imagined this book, and given us such a sustained sense of wonder.”–Pete Hamill

School Library Journal:
“A lovely tribute to the city and its boroughs.”

Kirkus Reviews:
“With sprawling landscapes and vast underground tunnels as a backdrop, readers will cheer Jessie’s story of revival. Immensely readable and surprisingly touching, this large heft of metal totes a lot of charm.”
