A Cooperative Children's Book Centre Choice

"Without editorialising, Ellis's suspenseful and thought-provoking novel offers a touching, humane context for one of the world's most intractable situations." — New York Times

"Quietly moving, full of surprises and, with Clare's colloquial and spirited voice, highly readable." — Kirkus Reviews

"There are no black and whites here, only ordinary people caught in the tangle of history, misunderstanding, and fear." — Booklist

"Ellis's premise is an unusual one, but with it she crafts a thought-provoking and sensitive story about the power of empathy and selflessness." — Publishers Weekly

"The characters' complexities are slowly revealed, adding layers to the story. Readers are plunged into the narrative, in the same way Clare must face her new feline life." — School Library Journal

"The ultimate message that every one has a story and that everyone has a chance at redemption is a hopeful one . . . a useful fictional counterpart to Ellis' nonfiction work." — Bulletin of the Centre for Children's Books
