Review:

"Anyone who enjoyed "The Cay will want to read the stunning prequel-sequel"--" The Sacramento Bee"No Less Commanding Than "The Cay"--" Publishers Weekly(Starred Review)

"Timothy's chapters sketch a murky sea of racial prejudice; readers will ache with him at his losses. Phillip's chapters, in a terse first person, depict the narrowness of his mother's world with a clarity heightened by Phillip's blindness. A journey well worth taking."--Kirkus Reviews
"Superb."--The Bulletin
