Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Sure to resonate and lift spirits of all ages for years to come.” USA Today
“Working in the voice of a fourteen-year-old forces Alexie to strip everything down to action and emotion, so that reading becomes more like listening to your smart, funny best friend recount his day while waiting after school for a ride home.” New York Times Book Review
“Opening this book is like meeting a friend you’d never make in your actual life and being given a piece of his world, inner and outer. It’s humane, authentic.” The Guardian (London)
“Younger teens looking for the strength to lift themselves out of rough situations would do well to start here.” Booklist
