Praise
"Written with humor and modest bits of philosophy, the writing sparkles with inventive, often dazzling metaphors. A tenderly existential work that will reward more thoughtful readers in this age of ubiquitous action saga."
"Young teens will certainly relate to the self-consciousness and uncertainty of all the characters, each of whom is straining toward clarity and awareness. The book is profusely illustrated with Perkins's amusing drawings...."
"Best of all are the understated moments, often private and piercing in their authenticity, that capture intelligent, likable teens searching for signs of who they are, and who they'll become."
"Part love story, part coming-of-age tale, this book artfully expresses universal emotions of adolescence."
