Praise For My Name Is Not Angelica

"O'Dell, like a conjurer, weaves worlds out of words . . . [He] doesn't spare readers any of the grim realities of slavery; the details . . . are at times almost unbearably painful . . . The ending . . . is so powerful, so searing, it will leave readers stunned." Publishers Weekly
