...A terrific book for teens. Full of fear, and forgiveness. Deep characters and plenty to discuss about right and wrong. A real winner in the true style of Paul Volponi's Black and White and Rooftop.

I'll have to take a look, but Volponi has a tendency to use rough language.

Correct as usual, Ms. Yingling -- this is definitely a YA. I read the whole book, the language was rough. Appropriate to the plot and characters but strong. Thanks for checking in at Anokaberry Annotated!
