Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

This...amusing chapter book goes down easy. Even with the fate of the world resting on their 'slightly hunched' shoulders, the main characters are so disarmingly upfront about their inadequacies that they'll definitely have readers on their side. Booklist
Keeps readers giggling. SLJ
It will hook readers and have them anxiously awaiting the next adventure. School Library Connection
Pokes sly fun at the pressure to raise future valedictorians and CEOs, by turning the tables on the classic trope of an average kid discovering greatness...Daneshvari's fast-paced, twisty story is chock-full of clever humor. Publishers Weekly
Delivers hilarious shenanigans...This humorous new series is sure to appeal to fans of Daneshvari and other lovers of the ludicrous. Kirkus
Daneshvari recognizes that far more powerful than a dork becoming cool is the ignored finally being heard, the invisible seen. Here's hoping we will be witnessing much more of Jonathan and Shelley's kind of transformation, on the page and in life. The New York Times
“Daneshvari delivers hilarious shenanigans…This humorous new series is sure to appeal to fans of Daneshvari and other lovers of the ludicrous.” Kirkus Reviews
“Daneshvari’s fast-paced, twisty story is chock-full of clever humor.” Publishers Weekly
