“A must-purchase.” — School Library Journal, starred review
“A candid and powerful reckoning of history.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“Johnson’s Westing Game–inspired tale is a tangled historical mystery, a satisfying multigenerational family story, and an exploration of twentieth-century (and contemporary) race and racism….His protagonist is intelligent, endearing, and believable.” — The Horn Book, starred review
“A compelling mystery and a powerful commentary on identity, passing, and sacrifice. Fans of The Westing Game, which gets several textual shoutouts, and other puzzling mysteries such as Balliett’s Chasing Vermeer will appreciate the twists and turns of this meaningful tale.” — Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, starred review
