Elizabeth Bird of Fuse #8 at School Library Journal just wrote an amazing review of A Girl Called Problem. This woman is major royalty in the middle-grade and young-adult universe.

It’s such an honor to have her review the book. Here’s a snapshot of the beginning of the review–ain’t it pretty?–and here’s the full review.
