“A moving tale of a kid who may have made a mistake but who still deserves the modest future he seeks. Refreshingly avoids cliché.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review))

“Masterful.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Myers creates a nuanced, realistic portrait of a teen dealing with incarceration and violence. Myers gets his voice just right.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))
