will the whole world change if we touch?
do you want to find out?



Review Quotes



Understated grayscale drawings and handwritten phrases mesh well with verses that move with fluidity across the pages. --Kirkus Reviews

There's a Tumblr/Twitter-friendliness to the voice that will win over many readers, and Mateer is talented at compressing the personal impact of larger currents of culture and gender into a tightly crafted and readable line." --The Bulletin

"Many young adults will find topics and situations they have experienced or can relate to in these pages, along with the encouragement to continue despite many of the difficult challenges they will encounter on the road to adulthood." --School Library Journal
