"Tyla Collier delivers the author's narrative on how centuries of abuse to Black Americans led to deep unrest and the founding of the Black Panther Party. Collier's narration gathers strength when she describes scenes of Bobby Seale and Huey Newton's early organizational attempts in 1966."
"Listeners will be haunted by the way Collier captures the teens' fear as they rely on their wits to escape. Collier keeps her narration steadfast as Addy learns to trust herself and leads her friends to safety. Collier's gripping performance heightens the harrowing survival story in this short but impactful listen."
"Collier's jaunty tone perfectly captures the mood of the story. Although she's a talented artist, 40-something Lu has bouts of imposter syndrome and worries that she's "not grown up enough," feelings that Collier depicts well and that will undoubtedly resonate with many listeners..."
"Tyla Collier portrays Hallie with enthusiasm, making her a believable, intelligent young woman. The tribulations she suffers are capably rendered. Overall, Collier's narration captures the emotions of the characters, as well as their humor."
"When portraying Mazie, Tyla Collier's voice is youthful and impatient as she suffers the limits of common childhood restrictions."
