Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This empowering collection belongs on every shelf.” Kirkus Reviews
“Channie Waites’s expressive narration further heightens the impact of Zetta Elliott’s paean to Black girls and women. By turns gentle, melodious, animated, and dramatic, Waites matches her pitch and pacing to the themes in Elliott’s poetry…An exceptional performance paired with soaring poetic contemplations on racism and how to fight against it. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“This collection is inspirational, uplifting, and encouraging for readers of all genders. Elliott may not think of herself as a poet, but her creativity and deft wielding of rich language prove otherwise.” School Library Journal
