"Starred Review. Erskine draws directly and indirectly on To Kill a Mockingbird and riffs on its central theme. Ages 8-12." - Kirkus Reviews
"Starred Review. Although an author's note links the novel with the 2007 tragedy at Virginia Tech, this novel is not about violence as much as about the ways in which a wounded community heals. Ages 10up." - Publishers Weekly
"Allusions to Harper Lees To Kill a Mockingbird, the portrayal of a whole communitys healing process, and the sharp insights into Caitlyns behavior enhance this fine addition to the recent group of books with narrators with autism and Asbergers. Grades 4-7." - Booklist
"Marred slightly by the portrayal of Devon as a perfect being, this is nonetheless a valuable book." - School Library Journal
