Review

..".an engrossing narrative about race in America, while honestly dealing with a host of other real-world issues, including familial relationships, friendship, dependency, "other"-ness, and perhaps most importantly, the search for common ground." "Publisher's Weekly"
""
"A moving evocation of a tipping point in our country's regrettable history of race relations, Long and Demonakos's story flows perfectly in Eisner and Ignatz Award winner Powell's graceful and vivid yet unpretty black-and-gray wash." "Library Journal"

" convincingly depicts the systemic racism, blatant and subtle, that suffused and corroded everything during [the] period [Popwell's] imagery amplifies the effects of the book's multiple perspectives the overwhelmed kid's-eye view of uneasy family dynamics and open Texas spaces, the hyperkinetic chaos on campus, the cropped literalism of TV newscasts." "The New York Times""
