Montreal Review of Books - April 24, 2015
"A compelling read...[Polak is] deft at informing readers about autism—explaining behavioural patterns, for instance—without lapsing into lecture mode...Encourages teen readers to consider the prejudices at play in their own lives, and to find the courage to stand up for what they believe is just."

"Shows how a young person learns to deal with autism and depression. Just doing the right thing and standing up can bring about change...A quick and easy read."

"A timely and topical story about bullying, prejudice, human justice and finding the courage to act in the face of it all...Highly recommended."

"Polak does a great job at getting inside Jordie’s head, to his true feelings and the reasons behind his reluctance to stand up for his cousin. He is so afraid that his friends will look at him differently that he hesitates to discuss his personal life with anyone. And what teenager cannot relate to that?...[Recommended] to anyone who is interested in teaching their children about social justice and the importance of standing up for what you believe in."
