Another author's comment
Books often feature quotes, called blurbs, by other authors on their back covers. Here's one that will appear on True Shoes:
"There are a lot of YA books. Some are moving portrayals of the complex lives of teens. A few — like this one — get into your heart and won't let go. These few books take us into the chaos, confusion, idealism, and hope that is adolescence. True Shoes shows us the inner lives of real young people trying their best to look out for themselves and others in a complex world. Highly recommended."
