A powerful story. . . . Travis is Everyteen: part insecure hell-raiser, part closet intellectual, prone to both sneers and tears. Hinton continues to grow more reflective in her books, but her great understanding, not of what teenagers are but of what they can hope to be, is undiminished. "Kirkus Reviews"
"An ALA Best Books for Young Adults
An ALA Quick Pick.
