“Gordon skillfully weaves in a lesson on war and politics, subtly revealing the many strong feelings and viewpoints that divide nations and families that are just as relevant today. Young readers looking for a mirror to their own evolving relationships and family dynamics will find just that in this contemplative and honest novel.”
—The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Gordon’s story will leave readers thinking about the politics and chaos of relationships and the effect war has on individuals.”
—Publishers Weekly
