A Kirkus Best Book of 2015

* “Readers will be moved by the empathetic lyricism of Mimi’s maturing voice.”—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* “Will resonate with fans of Jacqueline Woodson’s Brown Girl Dreaming…This novel stands out with its thoughtful portrayal of race and its embrace of girls in science and technical fields.”—School Library Journal, starred review

* “Perfect for readers who straddle societies, feel they don’t fit in, or need that confirmation of self-celebration.”—Booklist, starred review

“It is magnificent the way that Hilton sews together words stitching a beautiful quilt of colorfully written poems and sentences. … This is a treasure and truly so different from other books that it is definitely worth your time.”—The Denver Post

“Brimming with introspection and strong empathetic undertones, Full Cicada Moon is a ‘must-read.’ “—Kendal Rautzhan,

“Through the perspective of this clear-eyed, courageous heroine, Hilton (Found Things) powerfully recreates a time of momentous transition in American history.”—Publishers Weekly

“Like Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson, Hilton re-creates a time and place in American history and makes it vividly alive through the eyes of an intelligent, spirited girl…Fans of historical fiction and poetry will enjoy this novel.”—VOYA
