What Others are Saying about Swimming Up the Sun

"Swimming Up the Sun is a powerhouse of a book - at once graceful and strong. People touched by adoption will find it affirming and insightful; everyone else will learn a lot about the world around them, even as they simply enjoy Nicole Burton's wonderful writing."

Adam Pertman, author of Adoption Nation

"The questions raised about what it really means to be Mother, Daughter, Father, Sibling are the heart of this fascinating book."

Anne Becker, author of The Good Body

"Nicole Burton's heartwarming story pulls us in and holds us as a traveler clutches a suitcase. Swimming Up the Sun is a testament to the undervalued power of language, the strength of the human spirit, and the sea of possibility all around us."

Reuben Jackson, poet and contributor to National Public Radio's "All Things Considered"
