Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"While the narrative often seems an uneasy blend of the visionary and the message-driven, the result is nonetheless an evocative coming-of-age saga." 05/01/1998

San Francisco Chronicle Book Review
"Omishto is not meant as a realistic portrait of a teenage girl; she is the voice of the earth's dilemma at a precarious moment....'Power' moves more like a poem or a song than a novel, circling around and around its themes, deepening them with repetition..." - Jeanne Duprau 05/17/1998
