“Under the rubric of 'inspirationally instructive,' Schultz offers a compact book. Yet, writing with a focused mind, he dilates at length on the struggle within that mind.” (Kirkus)
“Starred review. [Shultz's] affecting prose will inspire compassion and leave readers with an understanding not only of dyslexia, but of the lifelong challenges that someone with disabilities may face.” (Publisher's Weekly)
“This beautifully written and compact memoir chronicles the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet's journey through life as a dyslexic. ...His story will resonate with any young adult who may be dealing with a learning disability, and it will promote understanding and perhaps compassion in others.” (Vicki Emery - School Library Journal)
