“For any girl going through life, body, and school changes, especially those interested in social activism.” –Kirkus Reviews

“Mya’s passionate—and often clueless—narration is a thoroughly entertaining rant by an overwrought tween with a big heart. . . . With a slim page count, brisk delivery, and trove of discussable topics, this bodes well for classroom as well as independent reading.”
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Mya’s passion for social justice means that she informs the reader about certain important global issues . . . [she] has a lot of personality and will be enjoyed by middle-school readers.” –CM Magazine, Highly Recommended

“Mya’s witty voice and deep desire for a cell phone will keep tween readers engaged . . . [a] welcome addition to middle grade bookshelves.” –School Library Journal
