Praise
"A gritty and well-written novel . . . this stands out in the field of young adult urban novels and will be as appealing to readers as it is accomplished."
The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)

"Quintero delivers an in-your-face YA debut, a passionate polemic on racial politics in urban America."
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"It is Quintero’s effortless grasp of teen slang that gives her first-person story its
heart."
Booklist (starred review)
