Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Told in alternating views between Audrey and Aaron, the book shows four amazing teens dealing with extraordinary situations and learning more about the world and their place in it. Highly recommended for teens and preteens.” Children’s Literature
“De los Santos and Teague again make big philosophical questions approachable and meaningful, creating a poignant novel that grapples with the variety of struggles people face and the beauty of embracing life and friendship anyway.” Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
“Funny and profound…What makes the story special is the authors’ nuanced understanding of how our special gifts fit into our lives.” Booklist
“A satisfying read that strikes a good balance between emotional highs and page-turning adventure.” Kirkus Reviews
“Narrators Cassandra Morris and Jesse Bernstein portray middle schoolers Audrey Alcott and Aaron Archer with assuredness through first-person alternating chapters…Morris and Bernstein’s clear, stripped-down deliveries allow listeners to immerse themselves in a classic coming-of-age story centered around tween outliers who find friendship when it most counts.” AudioFile
