Editorial Reviews

Review

"Craft again produces a funny and appealing yet sensitive and nuanced middle grade tale of inequity and microaggressions."

-- "School Library Journal"

"[A] visually rich, truth-telling tale for our troubled times that affirms the eternal importance of friends."

-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"

"Craft makes the story honest and believable and presents it as a powerful, if difficult to achieve, real-world possibility. Another work of resounding understanding and empathy."

-- "Booklist (starred review)" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
