    Book Description:

    "Poetic, breathtaking, descriptive and fast-paced… . An excellent choice for YA historical fiction shelves." —School Library Journal, starred review, on INVENTING VICTORIA

    "Seamlessly weaves aspects of black history into the detailed narrative… . Victoria emerges as a fully realized character, a product of all her experiences. The depiction of Washington, D.C.’s African-American elite is rich and complex … A compelling and significant novel." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review, on INVENTING VICTORIA

    "Bolden captures the period with meticulous detail… . [An] engrossing coming-of-age story." —The Horn Book Magazine on INVENTING VICTORIA

    "The rich descriptions of people and life in early America will fascinate readers as the book introduces them to this widely overlooked population in history." —Booklist on INVENTING VICTORIA

    "Readers will fall in love with Bolden’s gentle lyricism as she unflinchingly unfolds a difficult story." —Shelf Awareness, starred review, on CROSSING EBENEZER CREEK

    "Bolden … bravely concludes this concise, moving story with a historically accurate and horrifying ending." —Publishers Weekly, starred review, on CROSSING EBENEZER CREEK

    "The well-executed premise, a compelling love story, and unique historical details will appeal to fans of Ruta Sepetys’s Salt to the Sea … This moving and engrossing portrayal of a little-known historical tragedy belongs on all YA shelves." —SLJ, starred review, on CROSSING EBENEZER CREEK

    "A poetic, raw, and extraordinary imagining of a little-known, shameful chapter in American history." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review, on CROSSING EBENEZER CREEK

    "With keen insight, Bolden mines a lesser-known historical event and brings the human cost vividly to life … Bolden’s trenchant, powerful novel is a strong testament to the many lost lives that certainly did—and still do—matter." —Booklist, starred review, on CROSSING EBENEZER CREEK
