In Andy’s accessible, matter-of-fact first-person narrative, Poulsen explores a topic not often covered in teen fiction.
A worthwhile purchase for libraries looking to fill a niche.
School Library Journal
Very highly recommended and certain to be an enduringly popular addition to both school and community library collections.
Midwest Review of Books
Numbers is a deeply moving, nuanced, and fascinating depiction of how confusion and vulnerability can sometimes cause damages that can never be fully repaired.
Quill & Quire
Poulsen did a good job with characterization, which was vital in order to explain how a Holocaust denier could come to hold such sway over his audience.
Both as a nostalgic reminder of one's high school years and an inspiration to think thoroughly, independently, and compassionately, Numbers should be very close to number one on your reading list.
A book about Holocaust denial . . . with a complex plot which will thoroughly engage teenage readers.
Jewish Book Council
Numbers is a cautionary tale about the importance of questioning authority and demonstrates how easy it is to be swayed by charisma over facts — lessons which need to be re-learned over and over again from one generation to the next.
