"In this sensitive portrait of black-white relations in a changing neighborhood, Fogelin offers a tactful, evenhanded look at prejudice." --USA Today
"Fogelin creates Cass and Jemmie as complex characters with the same differences of approach and personality that mark the interactions of other best friends, whatever their skin color. Cass' straightforward voice never falters, even when she questions her father's beliefs and her own decisions.

Fogelin's characters are complex, fallible, and loving, as are real people, making Crossing Jordan an engrossing coming-of-age story...." --Orange County Register
