The Horn Book Guide
“Edgy topics with ‘pros and cons’ will provoke discussion. The daring art represents whimsical self-expression in a variety of wacky forms. The chaotic page design may challenge some readers. The many flavors of hip ‘street style’ include branding (like Coke and Apple), street art, tattoos, piercings, and spray paintings. Is it attractive? Is it legal? Readers can judge for themselves.” —The Horn Book Guide
