I found it to be an engrossing story and I came away with a new appreciation of the complexity of improvised rap poetry. * ReadPlus * The relationships between all these characters (notably Aunt Pooh and Bri, and Trey and Bri) are a joy to read, not because they are always perfect, but because they feel real * A Cosy Reader * It is legitimately illuminating. Like this story, which entreats teens to fight for their dreams and keep looking skyward. Punchy, inelegant, real, this story is dope. (Read it for yourself to understand why). * Kids Book Review * The rap lyrics featured provide insight into Bri's thoughts and feelings and give the writing style an irrepressible energy, rhythm and flow. It's a joy to read. * WH Smith * Read this book if you enjoy gripping, real YA. It's a story that needs to be heard, from a part of America that is ignored and disempowered on a daily basis. * Booksellers NZ *
