"Moracho’s coming-of-age story carries rare insight and a keen understanding of those verging on adulthood.” – Booklist (starred review)

"…it is the exquisitely created and painfully real, pitch-perfect characters who make it so memorable .”   SLJ (starred review)

“Moracho’s descriptions are vivid and arresting…which both grounds the story in familiar details and filigrees it with poetic flourishes.” – Kirkus (starred review)
