Walton shines, as she always does, in the small and hurtful and glorious business of interpersonal relationships...this book about philosophy, history, gender and freedom also manages to be a spectacular coming-of-age tale that encompasses everything from courtroom dramas to sexual intrigue. --Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing on The Just City A remarkable novel of ideas...Superb. In the end, the novel does more than justice to the idea of the Just City. --Booklist, starred review, on The Just City
