* "This [novel] grows with convincing detail of character and situation, punctuated by tension-building incidents ... Entirely through its own internal development, the novel shows the rich inner rewards of black pride, love, and independence."--Booklist, starred review
"The events and setting of the powerful novel are presented with such verisimilitude and the characters are so carefully drawn that one might assume the book to be autobiographical, if the author were not so young."--The Horn Book
"The strong, clear-headed Logan family... are drawn with quiet affection and their actions tempered with a keen sense of human fallibility."--Kirkus Reviews, pointer review
