Review:

“A devastating voice, demanding and raw . . . an accomplished work of art.” — THE LOS ANGELES TIMES

“The breathtaking velocity and visceral power of her prose soars off the page...The Kid gives us a story and a narrative voice which, like his mother’s before him, should definitely be heard.” — THE GUARDIAN (UK)

“[P]owerful... affecting and harrowing.” — Michiko Kakutani, THE NEW YORK TIMES

“[Sapphire] remains fearlessly committed to telling uncomfortable truths... Like Push, The Kid is deeply moving and unflinching.” — ESSENCE

The Kid’s unflinching authenticity makes it tough yet ultimately rewarding to read.” — PEOPLE

"Steely-eyed, full-frontal daring."PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER
