Review

“Poignant . . . This detailed offering, the first specifically intended for young audiences, has multiple curriculum applications.” ―Booklist, starred review

“Thoroughly sourced and meticulously documented, this stomach-churning, blood-boiling, tear-jerking account synthesizes a city's herculean efforts to access safe, clean water. . . . This compulsively readable, must-buy narrative nonfiction serves as the ultimate antidote to civic complacence.” ―School Library Journal, starred review

“A careful, conscious encapsulation of a consequential U.S. frontier for renewed environmental justice activism.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“Flint citizens need fresh coverage that respects their activism rather than their victimhood. This becomes the controlling theme of this vivid account.” ―BCCB
