"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. Readers will appreciate the honesty of Fogelin's approach and applaud the two girls in their fast friendship." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"...Jemmie and Cass are likable, lively characters, and readers will enjoy the repartee between them." --School Library Journal
"Old experiences and lifelong attitudes are hard to overcome, as Adrian Fogelin deftly demonstrates in her portrayal of Cass' dad and Jemmie's mom. Fogelin's characters are complex, fallible, and loving, as are real people, making Crossing Jordan an engrossing coming-of-age story...." --Orange County Register
