Praise

One of CCBC’S Best Books for Kids & Teens (2018)

“3.5/4… Common has created a powerful story about the quiet racism that exists in many small towns and asks readers to consider why one life is less important than another. Highly recommended for study in high school classrooms.” —CM Magazine

“Jenny’s voice is painful in its brutal honesty and her palpably felt helplessness, and there are layers of tragedy here that bring her to the realization that safe is merely another word for lucky.” —The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
