Reviews

In Andy s accessible, matter-of-fact first-person narrative, Poulsen explores a topic not often covered in teen fiction. - Booklist A worthwhile purchase for libraries looking to fill a niche. - School Library Journal Numbers is a deeply moving, nuanced, and fascinating depiction of how confusion and vulnerability can sometimes cause damages that can never be fully repaired. - Quill & Quire Poulsen did a good job with characterization, which was vital in order to explain how a Holocaust denier could come to hold such sway over his audience. - CM magazine Very highly recommended and certain to be an enduringly popular addition to both school and community library collections. - Midwest Review of Books Both as a nostalgic reminder of one's high school years and an inspiration to think thoroughly, independently, and compassionately, Numbers should be very close to number one on your reading list. - Bookpleasures.com A book about Holocaust denial . . . with a complex plot which will thoroughly engage teenage readers. - Jewish Book Council In Andy's accessible, matter-of-fact first-person narrative, Poulsen explores a topic not often covered in teen fiction. - Booklist Numbers is a cautionary tale about the importance of questioning authority and demonstrates how easy it is to be swayed by charisma over facts -- lessons which need to be re-learned over and over again from one generation to the next. - AJL Review
