Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A gorgeous, insightful, big-hearted joy of a book.” Nicola Yoon, New York Times bestselling author
"[In] David Arnold’s follow-up to last year’s wonderful Mosquitoland…Arnold continues to show mastery in crafting relatable teens struggling with dark circumstances…They’re a highly enjoyable bunch of outsiders.” USA Today
“Funny, sweet, utterly heart-wrenching.” Entertainment Weekly
“Funny and touching…Arnold has a talent for stringing together words in just the right, jumbled order. His sentences are arrows.” New York Times Book Review
“Luminous and deeply affecting…Beautifully written with compelling voices, evocative allusions and metaphors, and pithy aphorisms.” Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review)
“Narrator Michael Crouch’s portrayal shows the many facets of sixteen-year-old Vic’s sorrow…Phoebe Strole captures Mad’s strident tones and, gradually, the hidden vulnerability she bears from an abusive home…Interspersed in their alternating chapters are Ryan Vincent Anderson’s accented comments as Baz. Anderson’s deep, sonorous voice reflects Baz’s experiences and contrasts with the youthful timbres of Vic and Madeline.” AudioFile
