Praise
"The illustrations range from comics to more fleshed-out drawings. Just like Happyface's writing, they can be whimsical, thoughtful, boyishly sarcastic, off-the-cuff, or achingly beautiful."
"Emond tells the story via the teen's illustrated journal, authentically capturing his up-and-down emotions."
