"The points about the obstacles to voting are especially resonant, but readers will appreciation the book for addressing their concerns while also letting them have some sweet romance."--Recommended—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

*"A warmly entertaining story at the nexus of teen relationships and activism."—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

*"Colbert aptly discusses matters of civil disobedience and social justice--including police brutality and voter suppression--without sacrificing the delicate, lighthearted relationship at the story's center. Readers will find abundant food for thought in this vital fictional account of two teens intent on using their voices and engaging in a political system that makes it difficult for them to participate."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

*"Through . . . distinct alternating perspectives and without ever becoming didactic, Colbert warmly and appealingly addresses issues that many teens, especially those considering how their own first vote may play out, prefacing. Strong characterizations within the one-day scope make this a feat of storytelling, too."—Booklist (starred review)
