Praise for HiLo novella Blood Sport
★ “This book checks all the boxes of a hi-lo text. It has an exciting hook, a modern teen worldview, and is at a lower reading level...A must-buy for libraries looking for diverse and compelling hi-lo books.”
― School Library Journal, starred review
“This contemporary thriller offers suspense, intense sports competition, and a fast-paced plot leading to a resolution that emphasizes chosen family and inner-community support...A gripping mystery for reluctant readers.”
― Kirkus Reviews
“Sure to grab readers and keep them interested as they follow Jason and his quest for justice. The novel is a rip-roaring read that does exactly what it sets out to do―be engaging, highly readable, and incredibly thoughtful. Highly Recommended.”
― CM: Canadian Review of Materials
“The focused, deliberate writing keeps up the pace; this agile murder mystery moves like a bantamweight champion. Gritty yet without the pitfalls of trauma porn, this novel has the tough shell of noir but a tender underbelly, making it a great read for those looking for realistic yet trans-affirming fiction.”
“Readers will want more…Issues of childhood trauma, transgender people in today’s society and human trafficking combine to make this a 5 star book for teen readers.”
― Must Read Lit: K thru YA --This text refers to the paperback edition.
