"Largely autobiographical and incredibly self-aware, Howland’s stories conjure vivid portraits of her home city of Chicago and bring to life the hypnotic thoughts of her narrators among their wide casts of vividly drawn characters."
-- starred review, Publishers Weekly
"This is nothing less than a literary tour de force through hundreds of years of American history as seen through one hip-hop band and one landmark album. Mind-blowing!" - starred review, Booklist
Also, starred reviews from Kirkus Reviews and Library Journal
"Much of the humor is worked into the textured collage illustrations, which pop against the white background (Dad’s whimsical wardrobe is an especially nice touch). Never didactic, this is a warmhearted window into the things, expected and otherwise, that make up a family." - starred review, Booklist
