Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Possibly the best book about a geek written for geeks that has ever been written.” SFX magazine
“A lovely and touching exploration of grief and courage, perfect for self-proclaimed geeks and those who love them.” Kirkus Reviews
“This sweet novel about a broken young man trying to do good in the world was, for me, a brief, bright respite from the ugly clamor of current events.” Monica Wood, author of The One-in-a-Million Boy
“A charming, funny, romantic meditation on the ordinary heroism it takes to survive everyday life and the joys that await us when we take off our masks.” Steven Rowley, author of Lily and the Octopus
“A joy to read. Rhys Thomas has managed to take everything I like about literary fiction and put it into one book: humor, humanity, action, and redemption. If I’m being 100% honest, I’m actually a little mad at the guy. I wish I’d written this one myself.” Matthew Norman, author of We’re All Damaged
