Críticas

"This novel is about our differences and how we treat one another. It deals with contemporary issues and could well become important reading in today's high schools."
-- "Winnipeg Free Press"

"(Bifocal) is a powerful look at a community divided along racial lines."
-- "The Canadian Press"

"Together, Ellis and Walters created two vivid characters and put them in a fictional high school that bristles with racial tension."
-- "The Toronto Star"

"This thought-provoking novel works extremely well as an examination of the dangers of racism and the redeeming value of tolerance."
-- "Quill & Quire"

"This is a powerful and important book, one that will speak to modern teen readers in a way that they will undoubtedly hear and respond to. . . Without falling into didacticism, Ellis and Walters thoughtfully depict a full range of reactions and widely-held beliefs and offer readers the opportunity to see not only the vastly different experiences that shape Jay and Haroon's understanding of events, but also how so many others feel and respond to events like 9/11 and the mere threat of anything similar. . . "Bifocal" should, and will, enjoy a wide readership and would make an excellent choice for class, or group, discussion."
Highly Recommended.
-- "CM Magazine"

"This is a story that will leave readers looking at their schools and themselves with new eyes."
-- "Booklist"

"Bifocal is perhaps the bravest, most important, engaging and enraging, most satisfying work of fiction for young Canadians in a long while. Also, the most timely. It will make you think, render you angry and saddened, and leave you hopeful and reflective."
-- "The Hamilton Spectator"
