Editorial Reviews

“The stories have a simple, engaging sweep to them, but their weighty subjects―shame, racism, and friendship―receive thoughtful, powerful examination.” ― Booklist

“This much-anticipated, affecting store about growing up different is more than just the story of a Chinese-American childhood: it's a fable for every kid born into a body and a life they wished they could escape.” ― Publisher's Weekly

“Compositions are tidy and the palette is softly muted, so that even the strongest colors in the action scenes never reach the intensity of a visual assault. Kids fighting an uphill battle to convince parents and teachers of the literary merit of graphic novels will do well to share this title.” ― The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
