Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This accessible and moving novel demonstrates how the creative resilience of a child’s mind can soften difficult situations, while exploring the intersection of imagination and truth.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Employing sparse but elegant prose, Applegate has crafted an authentic protagonist whose self-possession and maturity conceal relatable vulnerability and fears. While sardonic Crenshaw may not be the warm and cuddly imaginary friend readers are expecting, he’s the companion that Jackson truly needs as he begins to realize that he doesn’t need to carry the weight of the world upon his shoulders…A compelling and unflinchingly honest treatment of a difficult topic.” School Library Journal
