Editorial Reviews

"Once again Spinelli takes his readers on a journey where choices between the self and the group must be made, and he is wise enough to show how hard they are, even when sweet."
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Spinelli poses searching questions about loyalty to one's friends and oneself and leaves readers to form their own answers."
