"Presented in a clear and direct writing style, the story has an emotional power that is similar to that in Patricia Polacco's Pink and Say.
Stark's realistic paintings are remarkable both for their artistry and their meticulous attention to historical accuracy. This book deserves a place in most collections." - School Library Journal
"Effective . . . This will leave readers with the insight that no side in a conflict has a lock on right or wrong."—Kirkus Reviews
