Tradewind’s title Cardboard City receives a glowing review by Quill & Quire. As reviewer Angela Wright describes, writer “Katarina Jovanovic offers an endearing fictional story about a place that once existed in her hometown.” Following the lives of two Romani teens, Nikola and Saida, this story examines their lives growing up in poverty under a bridge in Belgrade, Serbia. It explores both the emotional and physical challenges of their harsh circumstances as well as the discrimination the teens experienced because of it.
Wright concludes the review, by praising Cardboard City as “more than a book that allows readers to enter a world likely unknown to them, it’s also a resource to teach young readers about the consequences of objectifying marginalized people.”
