Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator Andrew Eiden captures the personality of Cyrus as he navigates his way through the sixth grade, where changes are around every corner…Eiden creates booming and gruff voices for Marcus and Shane, Cyrus’s old football buddies…Listeners will enjoy this coming-of-age story about school, friends, football, and family.” AudioFile
“Cyrus’ plight believably expands to seem almost insurmountable, but help comes from surprising directions in this moving, character-driven tale…With a strong, never-preachy anti-bullying message, this one scores a touchdown.” Kirkus Reviews
“This heartfelt and triumphant novel touches on bullying, stereotypes, and learning differences in a straightforward fashion. Cyrus’s journey toward self-acceptance will inspire readers of all ages.” School Library Journal (starred review)
“A heartrending and compassionate read about how standing up for something can help you stand up for yourself.” Lesa Cline-Ransome, author of Finding Langston
