★"Culley’s compelling free-verse poems accumulate into a poignant story of a family that was already struggling and then transformed into something unrecognizable. Liv’s narration is touching, honest, and perceptive. A story of love and resilience as much as loss and grief."
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review)
"Eloquent narrative verse. Culley deftly captures the community’s nuanced responses and the heartbreak both families navigate as this devastating tragedy becomes a political battleground."
Praise for Down to Earth
★"A captivating middle-grade novel.”
—Booklist, Starred Review
