Reviews

“The book is a graphic memoir—in the tradition of Alison Bechdel, who calls the story ‘riveting’—but it doesn’t tell the stories of specific students, and instead creates composites from the many teens Wilde has instructed in her classroom . . . Wilde relates the anecdote in just a few, compelling pages—and does so again and again throughout this frank, gripping story.”
Huffington Post

“It’s breathtaking! . . . This often-harrowing account is one of the most compelling things I’ve read in quite awhile.”
—Richard Pachter
The Miami Herald

“In this fictionalized account of one school year, the author paints searing portraits of her students and makes us root for them . . . This inspiring and heartbreaking read belongs in both teen and adult collections.”
Library Journal

“VERDICT When it comes to portraying life in an alternative high school setting, Yo, Miss is a direct hit.”
School Library Journal, starred review

“(Wilde) makes the reader root for these kids as desperately as she does, hoping for them to make the right decisions and somehow win.”
