“In addition to navigating [characters’] mental health struggles and physical disabilit[ies], Machias thoughtfully portrays characters who are cis and trans, gay and straight, and from different religious and racial backgrounds. This is a recommendation for readers who enjoyed Sharon Draper’s Out of My Mind.” — Booklist
