" An important story from recent world history. Well done. " said.

" A powerful story about South Africa that most kids and adults are likely to be unfamiliar with. The author did research and interviewed family members about Hector and the events that day. " said.

" A heartbreaking, tragic story about the true cost of hatred and racism. Powerful story. " said.

" This acknowledgement of Hector's life and the heartbreaking photo that made such an impact on the world is an enlightening non fiction for kids. " said.

" Obviously there is a photograph in this book. From the title you know this. It is a very difficult photo to look at though and is not for young readers. " said.

" This heart-wrenching book tells the story behind a famous photograph that became a symbol of the fight against apartheid. Uniquely told in three overlapping viewpoints, the story ties together the life of one ordinary boy with a national fight for equality. " said.

" Powerful and heart-wrenching story about Hector, who was killed in South Africa during apartheid protests in 1976. The info is presented clearly and Wright incorporates comic-style panels further elucidate the material. Important--should be a part of every library collection. " said.

" Ms. Wright brings a special boy's life and the appreciation for a single photograph's ability to change the world into full view in this deeply moving book. Her unique storytelling format and delicate illustrations blend together perfectly. " said.
