Against a backdrop of poverty, clannishness, drugs, and intolerance, Myracle has crafted a harrowing coming-of-age tale couched in a deeply intelligent mystery. Smart, fearless, and compassionate, this is an unforgettable work from a beloved author.
Praise for Shine
"Cat eventually uncovers the truth in a cliffhanging climax in which she confronts fear, discovers that love is stronger than hate and truly 'shines.' Raw, realistic and compelling."
- Kirkus Reviews
"The page-turning mystery and Cat's inspiring trajectory of self-realization will draw readers in and give them plenty to ponder."
- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Dramatic in both content and presentation."
- Los Angeles Times
"Myracle captures well the regret that many feel for things in their past about which they are ashamed. Cat's reflections on these moments are spot-on."
- School Library Journal
