MEDIA REVIEWS
"Young People's Poet Laureate Nye explores childhood, conflict, and connectivity through over 100 of her poems, both new and classic. . . . Striking use of everyday images and timely themes makes this free verse collection meaningful, memorable, and accessible. . . . Emotionally resonant and stirring, this is a must-have title." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Over 100 poems, some new, some previously published, are collected in this volume by Young People's Poet Laureate Nye. The poet's voice is, as always, distinct and inquisitive and hopeful, sometimes playful, sometimes tender, sometimes both . . . Compelling." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"A substantial volume of poems by Nye . . . A pleasure on many fronts. . . . Warm, welcoming, [and] inclusive . . . Lucky the reader who would have this collection lying around for visiting and revisiting." -- Horn Book Magazine
