"This beautiful, yet at times brutally vivid, historical verse novel will bring this horrifying, tragic period to life for astute, mature readers who enjoy... THE SURRENDER TREE by Margarita Engle (Holt, 2008) and BETWEEN SHADES OF GREY by Ruth Sepetys (Philomel, 2011)." ~ School Library Journal, starred review. November release.
"Teens looking to make a difference will find inspiration as well as real-world strategies for realizing their dreams of being the change they want to see in the world. Inspirational as well as practical." ~ Kirkus Reviews. September release.
