"The illustrations shine...with gorgeous, intricate scenes of Paulina's home life and training, thoughtful portraits of each character, and little treats such as boxing gloves arranged in a heart. ...a beautiful and unusual tale of family and strength."-Kirkus Reviews "Elegant and melancholic, Courgeon's posterlike images suit the mood of a story whose subtle details (of her father, a Russian miner turned cab driver: "Feather could see how tired he really was") create an intimate connection between readers and a girl who forges her own path."-Publishers Weekly
