Rosemary Neill wrote in the Australian last weekend:
‘This extraordinarily potent crossover novel for adults and older teens looks at racial intolerance through the prism of a dangerous friendship between a black and a white boy. … The sensual, almost overripe prose of Tony Johnston, one of the US’s most revered children’s writers, bursts with idiomatic eccentricity and a deep sense of foreboding. This is a mini-masterpiece.’
