Joshua Boyd interviewed me about Cracking the Ice in The Georgetown Record. It’s a substantial one, over a full half page.
"Cracking the Ice scores the literary equivalent of a hat-trick: funny, harrowing and finally, heartfelt. This book is a winner." --Greg Neri, author of Yummy: the Last Days of a Southside Shorty, a 2011 Coretta Scott King Honor book
"I started Cracking the Ice and could not put it down. Jessie Stackhouse's generosity, hope and intelligence touched my heart...I kept reading until the last page!" --Joyce Carol Thomas, author of 2009 Coretta Scott King Honor book, The Blacker the Berry
"A compelling, civil rights tale of a young man's coming of age on the ice. Hendrickson personalizes history with unforgettable characters." -- Jewell Parker Rhodes, author of 2011 Coretta Scott King Honor book, Ninth Ward
"Having been a black hockey player in this era, I found that Cracking the Ice isn’t just a very good read. It captures the prep school life completely. I felt like I was back in my old room. The hockey action comes to life. The scenes made me feel as if I were out on the ice. But this book doesn’t just cover a black hockey player at a prep school; it’s for anyone trying to succeed in difficult situations.” -- Richard Harris

"'Tiffany' works beautifully, and by the end of the story, I had fallen in love with this savvy, determined, and somewhat crazy woman. Everyone who has read this story remembers it and likes it. You will too."
