What critics are saying...
"A powerful coming- of-age story filled with evocative language, memorable characters, and apt nature imagery."
- The Horn Book starred review
"There is a special power in historical fiction’s ability to blend real issues and events with engaging characters, turning the past into a living, breathing thing. Salazar accomplishes this beautifully in her new novel in verse set in 1965 California during the Farmworker’s Movement."
- ALA Booklist Starred Review
"Compelling and atmospheric"
