Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Silence that Binds Us is a propulsive reminder that race-based discrimination takes a multitude of forms, all of them insidious and traumatic. I adored this ornately carved window into the core of shared humanity. A fascinating exploration of what happens when deeply rooted cultural norms collide with privilege-centered notions of 'fairness.' Read and re-read. Then read it again." -- Nic Stone, New York Times bestselling author of Dear Martin

"Zinger after zinger, Joanna pierces us with the truth we can’t ignore even as she cocoons us in love. Just like May, she’s taking back the narrative with her powerful pen." -- Abigail Hing Wen,
New York Times bestselling author of Loveboat, Taipei

“A held-breath of a novel that finds courage amidst brokenness, and holds a candle to the dark.” -- Stacey Lee,
New York Times bestselling author of The Downstairs Girl

“Ho confronts racism with care and nuance, capturing the complexities of grief and growth. A poignant call to action.” -- Randy Ribay, National Book Award finalist for
Patron Saints of Nothing

“A clarion call to search out, listen to, and uplift the narratives—personal, societal, and historical—that have been silenced by factors as intimate as shame and as broad as colonialism. Maybelline's insightful, honest narration frames her awkward conversations and her eloquent poetry to tell a vitally important story that everyone needs to hear.” -- Misa Sugiura, author of
This Time Will Be Different

“A vital message of the power of using your voice for change. Both challenging and accessible, realistic and aspirational.” -- Kelly Loy Gilbert, author of
When We Were Infinite

“I couldn't put Joanna Ho's 
The Silence That Binds Us down! This was a powerful empowering read that will inspire so many readers to scream, shout, stand up, speak out, and share their truths! I was so invested in May's family and her friendships and felt so proud of the characters and the ways they were able to transform by directly addressing the issues that impact them- racism, mental health, the culture of white supremacy, and the false ease of silence. I hope this book is read in every home, school, and library as it's an absolute necessary read!” -- Tiffany Jewell, New York Times bestselling author of This Book Is Anti-Racist --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
