"As with all of Hudgins+ work, the enthralling narratives and simple verse transcend class and geography, but Shut Up+s best feature is the combined didactic value of its title and its speakers+ perspectives."-Washington City Paper
"[A] compelling and hilariously offensive little book."-January magazine
