Review

“Readers of all ages will be pulled into this strong, warm, and important coming-of-age story, seen through the eyes of an innocent boy trying to make sense of a racially violent world around him. Blending honesty and humor with history isn't easy, but Bibi Belford has hit all her marks with courage and conviction.”
—Randall Platt, author of Incommunicado and The Girl Who Wouldn't Die

“‘We have stories to tell,’ Bibi Belford writes in this powerful novel, ‘if we are brave to tell them.’ And I’m so glad to have read this brave story. Crossing the Line tackles tough issues that didn't make sense in Billy's lifetime, and that don't make sense now—and his journey is infused with hope that even the smallest among us can be a catalyst for big change.”
—Beth Vrabel, author of Pack of Dorks and A Blind Guide to Stinkville

“A heart-wrenching, heart-pounding read, set almost a hundred years ago but with themes that still resonate strongly today. The characters are unforgettable, and loyal even as their friendship is tested. A story that will leave you thinking about how you can cross the line.”
—Lisa Ann Scott, author of Back on the Map and School of Charm

"A timely novel . . . Belford deftly walks her own line.” —The Historical Novels Review

"There’s no easy way to solve the problem [of racism] but a start might be to require every fifth grader to read this book. It’s that powerful." —Always in the Middle

“Gritty and real and honest in a way that's still okay for younger readers . . . this is a book that [every pre-teen needs] to read. Honestly, I would say that this is a book that everyone needs to read at some point or another. It's definitely far and away one of the best books I've read this year.”—I Read Till Dawn

“A powerful story of friendship and the cost that can come with doing the right thing . . . Crossing the Line is an excellent read!” —Compass Book Ratings --This text refers to the paperback edition.
