A mesmerizing, punch-in-the-gut story about the power of friendship and the horrors hiding right in front of us. Laurie Halse Anderson, author of Speak and Chains This thought-provoking thriller examines issues such as abuse, gentrification, and the marginalization of people of color with nuance and sensitivity. The narrative deftly moves back and forth between past and present, building to a devastating conclusion. A spellbinding, profoundly moving choice for YA collections. School Library Journal (starred review) Jackson effortlessly weaves elements of suspense with issues of race, class, and gender, casting a harsh light on a world that often refuses to notice the disappearances of black and brown girls. The twist at the end is both gaspworthy and heartbreaking. Bulletin of the Center for Childrens Books (starred review) Jackson doesnt hold anything back when it comes to the pain of abuse and the ramifications of turning a blind eye. Its a frank, devastating read filled with real and flawed characters, and its a story that needs to be read. Booklist In addition to a gripping plot line, underlying social issues bubble beneath the surface, such as neighborhood gentrification, race, poverty, community, the healing of connection, and the destruction in disconnection. The Horn Book The gravest, most fundamental challenge in Tiffany D. Jacksons devastating novel is leveled at a society that purports to value children while allowing untold numbers of them, particularly poor children and children of color, to fall through the cracks. Chicago Tribune PRAISE FOR ALLEGEDLY: With remarkable skill, Jackson offers an unflinching portrayal of the raw social outcomes when youth are entrapped in a vicious cycle of nonparenting and are sent spiraling down the prison-for-profit pipeline. Dark, suspenseful. School Library Journal (starred review) Her novel effectively joins Ava DuVernays documentary 13th and Michelle Alexanders The New Jim Crow (2010) to become another indictment of the penal systems decimating power beyond its bars and, more subtly and refreshingly, a pro-reproductive-justice novel. Searing and true. Kirkus Reviews (starred review) The characters are complex, the situation unsettling, and the line between right and wrong hopelessly blurred. Its also intensely relevant, addressing race, age, and mental illness within the criminal justice system. Well conceived and executed, this is an absorbing and exceptional first novel. Publishers Weekly (starred review) Suspenseful without being emotionally manipulative, compelling without resorting to shock value, this is a tightly spun debut that wrestles with many intense ideas and ends with a knife twist that will send readers racing back to the beginning again. Booklist (starred review) Seen through Jacksons dark portrait of the legal system and the failures of parents and social workers, Marys environments are as grim as the stories that play out in them; readers fascinated by procedural dramas will be thoroughly hooked. Bulletin of the Center for Childrens Books A well-executed, powerful journey into the claustrophobic life of a young girl trying to navigate what little is left after the world has judged her, and what she will do to escape it. Mindy McGinnis, Edgar Award-winning author of A Madness So Discreet A riveting, gut-wrenching thriller and a stunning debut. Daniel Jos Older, New York Times bestselling author of Shadowshaper Tiffany Jacksons timely and chilling debut will haunt you for a long time. An extraordinary new voice. Justine Larbalestier, author of Liar and My Sister Rosa
