Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Teen (and adult) listeners will relish every word of British author Alice Oseman’s latest tour de force, narrated by Aysha Kala…Kala’s expert narration is a perfect match to the book, which captures angst-ridden teens with authenticity.” AudioFile
“Vividly illustrates that the world and its technologies offer opportunities for connection and fulfillment that go far beyond traditional definitions of success.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“An intense, highly engaging, well–plotted story of relationships, explorations into gay and bisexual identities, family trauma, a straight-jacket education system, and, mostly, kids yearning to be their truest selves despite it all.” Booklist (starred review)
“Keenly intelligent. A smart, timely outing.” Kirkus Reviews
“Oseman is a master at combining sardonic wit with angst to create believable characters and a compelling contemporary story that will resonate with teens.” School Library Journal
“In [Oseman’s] punky, depressive, epigrammatic, mordant heroine Tori Spring we have a Holden Caulfield for the internet age.” Times (London)

Author Bio: Alice Oseman

Alice Oseman was born in 1994 in Kent, England. She is studying English at Durham University, probably due to the expectation of society, but mostly spends her time obsessing over fictional characters, drawing really dumb comics, and complaining about things on her Tumblr, www.chronicintrovert.tumblr.com. Hopefully, she’ll avoid having to get a real job for the rest of her life.
