Editorial Reviews

Review

Tradition is a deeply felt, powerful, devastating and, ultimately, hopeful look at toxic rape culture and its destructive effects.” (Nicola Yoon, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Everything, Everything and The Sun is Also a Star )

"Powerful and necessary, Brendan Kiely bravely takes on class, privilege, and injustice in this layered, authentic story about friendship and finding the courage to stand up for what is right—Tradition is an important, timely book that will empower young men to rise up against misogyny and rape culture."   (Amber Smith, New York Times bestselling author of The Way I Used to Be )

"Tradition is a startling portrait of privilege and rape culture, but it is also ultimately a book about resistance and hope, the power of friendship to embolden our integrity, and the courage to do the right thing even when everyone else seems to be doing wrong." (Amy Reed, author of The Nowhere Girls )

Tradition is a stunning, timely, and deeply poignant novel about the culture of sexual violence. Sure to spark necessary conversations, this is 2018's must-read young adult novel.”  (Kathleen Glasgow, New York Times bestselling author of Girl in Pieces )

"Tradition isn't so much a book as it is an invitation and a promise. An invitation to stand up for ourselves and for what's right, and a promise that if we stand, we won't do so alone.  Beautifully written with Brendan's wit and compassion, this book is a must read for all those hopeful for a better world." (Shaun David Hutchinson, author of the Florida Book Awards' Gold Medal and ALA's 2015 Rainbow Book List novel, The Five Stages of Andrew Brawley )

"Brendan Kiely’s Tradition is a searing literary call-to-arms in the most powerful and just sense: it takes a sledgehammer to our rotten, dangerous, and deeply ingrained traditions, so that we can build something new and beautiful in their place."  (Jeff Zentner, author of the William C. Morris Award winning and Carnegie Medal longlisted The Serpent King and Goodbye Days )

* "A story that belongs in every library."  (School Library Journal, starred review )

* “A novel to discuss.” (Publishers Weekly, starred review )

* “Kiely handles extremely difficult issues--sexual assault, Internet shaming, substance abuse--delicately and tactfully, giving the characters the space organically to grow, learn and heal.” (Shelf Awareness, starred review )

* “There is no doubt: this is an important book that all young adults should read.” (VOYA, starred review )

“Kiely bravely explores rape culture and how it intersects with class and privilege… readers will find themselves rooting for the world not as it is, but as it might yet be.” (Booklist )

“This novel is a timely road map for those looking to find their places in this rapidly changing world… A thoughtfully crafted argument for feminism and allyship." (Kirkus )

“What Tradition demonstrates is that women finding the courage to speak up is only part of the equation; men have to listen and, more importantly, be willing to change.” (Chicago Tribune )
