""Kadohata's finely wrought prose creates haunting pictures." * Washington Post *
"A chilling vision of the 21st century, conceived with prescient imagination and rendered in lean, evocative prose that blossoms into stunning images. ,. . . As timely as this week's news, yet with the enduring value of literature, this novel speaks simply but eloquently of the human spirit's capacity to survive. * Publishers Weekly *
"Kadohata is masterful in her evocation of physical, spiritual, and cultural displacement. . . . The message of this marvelous though often painful book is that our capacity to feel deep emotion-our own and others's-just might bind us together, and save us from ourselves." * Los Angeles Times *
"Kadohata manages with lean, uncomplicated prose to tell a remarkable story of love and redemption, with characters who are credible and sympathetic." * Chicago Tribune *
"Recommended as an effective depiction of what the future might hold." * Library Journal *
"A beautifully crafted novel that warns and hurts and delights." * Kirkus Reviews *
"This remarkable novel, set in 2052, imagines a Los Angeles in which class and economic inequities are heightened and resources have grown scarce. It's not dystopia that interests Kadohata, however, but survival: the various ways we get along." * Alta: Journal of Alta California *
