“A much-needed reminder that certain fights are worth fighting, that while bears of all types may prowl unsettlingly close, fear can be faced down and victories achieved, especially with strength in numbers.” —The New York Times

“Timely, engaging, and full of heart.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Full of humor, rage, and heart . . . A triumphant ending shows how systemic change can be made when girls stand together. Absolutely necessary for tweens and teens . . . Straight fire.” —Booklist, starred review

“Crackling . . . Deeply, often scathingly honest.” —School Library Journal, starred review

“With timely, important anecdotes that ring painfully true, Firestone cuts to the heart of the damage that dress coding can inflict . . . [A] deeply satisfying, variously inclusive journey with a wonderfully flawed main character.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review 

“[Dress Coded] addresses deeper issues such as draconian and prejudicial dress codes, body shaming, name calling, bullying, and vaping . . . The story reflects the ups and downs of middle school, and the validation that comes when one successfully stands up for what one believes.” —School Library Connection

“With a perfect mix of friendship, humor, and girl power, Dress Coded is a book readers need.” –Stacy McAnulty, bestselling author of The Miscalculations of Lightning Girl

Dress Coded is a compelling, subversive, emotionally astute story of the pernicious effects of everyday sexism and of the revolutionary potential when girls decide to fight back. An electrifying ode to the power of standing up and standing together.” –Anne Ursu, author of The Real Boy and The Lost Girl
