    "Frazier writes affectingly about what being biracial means in twenty-first century America."—School Library Journal

    "Brendan is an appealing character with a sense of honor. . . . A good, accessible selection to inspire discussion of racism and prejudice."--Kirkus Reviews

    "Frazier delivers her messages without using an overly heavy hand. Brendan is a real kid with a passion for science and also a willingness to push his parents' rules."--Booklist
