“The author’s narration captures the emotional seesaw of adolescence and fittingly portrays characters of other ages with various accents. Her restrained approach contributes to the characters’ credibility and complexity. This enjoyable performance could serve as a good starting point for a discussion about prejudice.” — AudioFile April, 2010

“Fogelin’s narration reflects her intricate knowledge of the characters, and she brings the emotional depth of each scene to life. Southern life resonates as the author expertly defines each character’s unique traits and dialect. An engrossing, evenhanded look at prejudice and interracial friendship.” — School Library Journal October, 2009

“Fogelin does a stupendous job giving Cass a voice that is both strong and innocent … This audio version of a story of hope, friendship and the ability to look beyond skin color to the person within is a solid performance suitable for family listening, especially where racial issues need to be addressed.” — SoundCommentary February 1, 2010 

Praise for the print version of Crossing Jordan:
“In this sensitive portrait of black-white relations in a changing neighborhood, Fogelin offers a tactful, evenhanded look at prejudice.” — USA Today
“Fogelin creates Cass and Jemmie as complex characters with the same differences of approach and personality that mark the interactions of other best friends, whatever their skin color. Cass’ straightforward voice never falters, even when she questions her father’s beliefs and her own decisions. Readers will appreciate the honesty of Fogelin’s approach and applaud the two girls in their fast friendship.” — Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
