Praise

Voya
"...exciting and well done...a gem that deals with the gritty emotion of being a teenage boy who matures into a man." - C. Allen Nichols June 1997

Los Angeles Times Book Review
"...the author tells a terrific story--subtle, funny, cleanly drawn. Benny; his pals; his girlfriend, Kim; and his family are all vivid characters and it is a pleasure to read about them." - Karen Stabiner 09/15/1996

Chicago Tribune Books
"There are only a few contemporary writers who can hit the mark with teenage boys, and Rich Wallace, with his first novel, seems likely to join that group." - Mary Harris Veeder 04/14/1996

"Here's a contender--tough, smart, all the right moves. With his first novel, Rich Wallace vaults into the first string with Bruce Brooks and Chris Crutcher." - Robert Lipsyte

"Beautifully written...a chance to be inside the head of a boy just as he becomes a man." - Pam Conrad

Kirkus Reviews
"The young characters here, male and female, are all athletes, but not stereotyped jocks, and Wallace limns the pleasures and limitations of small-town culture with a sure hand." 05/15/1996
