Editorial Reviews

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

“Wisely puts the citizens of Flint front and center, letting them tell their stories, while placing those stories into historical context. . . . powerful.” ―Horn Book Magazine

“A call to action for youth and their parents everywhere, this gripping true story hits close to home on many levels.” ―School Library Connection-online now
