"A rare novel. Here art and propaganda, superb writing and intelligent critique exist in near perfect equilibrium." -- Jerry W. Ward, New Orleans Review
"Through Angelina, Young looks at a variety of problems facing young Black women today. . . . I don't always agree with Young's conclusions, but they are honest and they work." -- Janice C. Simpson, Essence
"Urban blues, race, the need for roots and love these are commonplaces that Mr. Young renovates with a fresh aspect. His characters are invested with a pithy eloquence that makes the clashing of ideas a pure delight." -- Martin Levin, New York Times Book Review
