“Intrigues, breaks hearts, then soars.  Williams is superb.” Angela Johnson author of Heaven

“ Lori Aurelia Williams is a gifted writer whose words ring with both poetry and honesty.  Her characters are real enough to invite to Sunday dinner, and the story is woven together like a fine patchwork quilt.”  Sharon M. Draper author of Forged by Fire

“The book’s rich introductory language, the starkness of Kambia’s experiences…and her journey toward healing with Shayla’s commonsense assistance make Williams another welcomed author to the children’s literature fold.” Eleanor E. Tate author of The Secret of Gumbo Grove
