Starred Kirkus review for Street Dreams

Starred Kirkus review for Street Dreams

This YA title from Bold Strokes Books received a starred review in the May 15 issue of Kirkus (already live on site).  Kirkus called this novel by Tama Wise “compassionate, thoughtful and expressive.”

“This New Zealand import traces a Maori teen’s journey through friendships, family, work and the realization that he is gay. The language, though inflected with regional slang and the names of local hip-hop artists, is both accessible and lyrical.  No simple coming-out story, this many-layered effort is gritty, warm and ultimately hopeful.”
