“Wow, wow, WOW. This book handles so many intense, difficult topics — addiction, sexual abuse, foster care, mental health, consent, poverty — in a sensitive, age-appropriate way. I can’t express how perfectly Kimberly Brubaker Bradley walks the line of telling the truth about these situations without ever getting explicit or unnecessarily graphic. I am astounded at how gracefully and carefully this story is laid out. Everyone everywhere should read Fighting Words.”
