“Fun, peppy, and unusually frank…Readers of both sexes whose hormones have just begun to simmer will welcome a book that so accurately mirrors their new worldview.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Burgess demonstrates that he has not forgotten what it is like to be a teenage boy…The boys learn about good relationships both among themselves and with the girls, work through their problems, and accomplish it all without becoming predictable in this new young adult masterpiece.” VOYA
“Readers may be drawn in by the intense sexual tone, and find a well-developed story that will spark reflection on the meaning and strength of peer and romantic relationships.” School Library Journal
