"[Sylvia Olsen] knows what it is like to walk the line between white and Indian culture, and she is fair in her presentation of those on both sides of the line. Worth acquiring for any senior high school library collection. Recommended." - CM Magazine
“The author effectively writes scenes that leave the reader squirming for a positive resolution, and shine a light on intolerance and stereotypes. Kudos for addressing tough issues in an accessible manner.” - Hip Librarian's Book Blog
