Editorial Reviews

Review

"An apocalyptic picture of America on the brink of civil disorder and social collapse. . . . The writing is lucid and finely honed, often lyrical and occasionally magical."  -- Michiko Kakutani, ― New York Times

""Kadohata's finely wrought prose creates haunting pictures." ―
Washington Post

"A chilling vision of the 21st century, conceived with prescient imagination and rendered in lean, evocative prose that blossoms into stunning images. ,. . . As timely as this week's news, yet with the enduring value of literature, this novel speaks simply but eloquently of the human spirit's capacity to survive. ―
Publishers Weekly

"Kadohata is masterful in her evocation of physical, spiritual, and cultural displacement. . . . The message of this marvelous though often painful book is that our capacity to feel deep emotion—our own and others's—just might bind us together, and save us from ourselves." ―
Los Angeles Times

"Kadohata manages with lean, uncomplicated prose to tell a remarkable story of love and redemption, with characters who are credible and sympathetic." ―
Chicago Tribune

"Recommended as an effective depiction of what the future might hold." ―
Library Journal

"A beautifully crafted novel that warns and hurts and delights." ―
Kirkus Reviews

"This remarkable novel, set in 2052, imagines a Los Angeles in which class and economic inequities are heightened and resources have grown scarce. It’s not dystopia that interests Kadohata, however, but survival: the various ways we get along." ―
Alta: Journal of Alta California

As a child, Cynthia Kadohata’s biggest life goal was not to be a writer. It was to own a dog. Since then, she has had six rescue dogs as her best friends. And, she has been extremely fortunate to have mostly worked as a writer during her adult life. She is the author of ten children’s books, including Kira-Kira, winner of the Newbery Medal; The Thing About Luck, winner of the National Book Award; Weedflower, winner of the Jane Addams Peace Award; Cracker, winner of six state awards as voted on by kids; A Place to Belong, longlisted for the National Book Award; and the upcoming Saucy, about a piglet like millions of others, yet also TOTALLY herself.
