"A model of how art becomes therapeutic after tragedy, this uplifting collection resurrects hope and love in heartfelt messages for older teens and adults." —Library Journal
"These pages are filled with rage, and sadness, and frustrated helplessness, and sympathetic concern, and a defiant determination to take action. It's real and it's raw-throated and it always risks going too far, and spiraling into maudlin kitsch. But again: so what? If it didn't take that risk, it would be safe, and tasteful, and not remotely worth doing." —NPR
"It is worth mention, that ALL proceeds from this book will be going to the victims, survivors and their families via Equality Florida. I have read this book over. I don't think I have felt so much or wept so much at the bravery of the characters within." —Comic Crusaders
"Each piece feels like a snapshot, and the book as a whole is more like a massive accumulation of images, anecdotes and moments. And honestly? That’s the genius of it." —CBR
