"Dr. Bramhall captured the voice of a scared teenager who is still figuring herself out very well . . .I admired the passion Ange exhibited and the resolve she had to act on her beliefs and to see change happen. This inspired me to strive harder to stand up for my beliefs."
By Madeleine Sullivan for Readers' Views
"Incredibly well written and realistic read. So realistic, in fact, that I found parts incredibly hard to take on. . . A remarkable book for adults working with teens, women's studies and reading groups."
Stephanie Laymon, Five Alarm Reviews
"Dr. Stuart Jeanne Bramhall strikes me as a superb author, showing remarkable insight into the mind of this 16-year-old activist. This award-winning book will captivate and inspire the inner activist in all who read it! Highly Recommended."
By Cecilia Lee, Allbooks Review International
"There are many key points taught in this novel - the fact that the U.S. is turning to
the "dark side" and does need to change its ways before our children are caught in a
maelstrom of violence and despair, rings through loud and clear."
Feathered Quill Book Reviews"Though fiction, this book is a sort of wake-up call. It will tug at the inner activist in you to make you want to do something. You fall in love with Ange, she is a much likeable teenager...An excellent read in which the author takes you on an amazing journey." Haley K "Hanging Off the Wire
