Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - C. Dennette Michaels
Through the voice of Bryan, the young teen protagonist, Casanova describes violence-domestic and union. She delivers an exposition on the history of the labor movement and the issues relating to the environmental impact of a paper mill. But that isn't all, she also reveals the tensions found in the complex relationships of marriage with children and has created a pair of parents who embody the opposites of violence and non-violence. Wow!. No pedantic answers, just drama to be experienced. It may have been more helpful to have the author's note at the beginning of the book rather than at the end, nevertheless, I'd like to have all literate America find and read this book.
School Library Journal
Gr 4-7Tension mounts in Blue Ash, MN, when a nonunion company moves in and takes over the jobs of resident union workers. Byran Grant's father is one of the misplaced employees and the stress spills over into his family's life. Sixth-grader Byran tries to understand the situation, the feelings of the newcomers, and his father's hateful attitudes. Only when vandalism and eventual all-out confrontation leads to the boy's father's arrest do the key players realize that other solutions might be possible. Casanova has created an exciting, realistic novel. Discussion lovers will have a field day debating the strengths of the issues and the people involved. Characters sustain the mood of the fast-paced story. Bryan serves as a model for family loyalty yet remains true to his own thinking as well. For reading aloud or enjoying as a coming-of-age story, Riot has a place on library shelves and in social-studies curriculum literature.Cheryl Cufari, Glencliff Elementary School, Niskayuna, NY
