Sapphire the Great and the Meaning of Life "is full of zest...throughout the novel, the theme of gender-nonconformity is present without being explicitly broken down or didactic...Brenna's novel also directly challenges young readers to think beyond cisgender norms...very helpful classroom provide an entry point for anti-bias and inclusive language and to open up important conversations on gender, self-identity, and inclusivity." --Quill & Quire
