Flint loves to draw. In fact, he’s furiously trying to finish his comic book so he can be the youngest winner of the “Find a Comic Star” contest. He is also rushing to finish because he has keratoconus—an eye disease that could eventually make him blind. McKell is the new girl at school and immediately hangs with the popular kids. But McKell’s not a fan of the way her friends treat this boy named Squint. He seems nice and really talented. He draws awesome pictures of superheroes. McKell wants to get to know him, but is it worth the risk? What if her friends catch her hanging out with the kid who squints all the time? McKell has a hidden talent of her own but doesn’t share it for fear of being judged. Her terminally ill brother, Danny, challenges McKell to share her love of poetry and songwriting. Flint seems like someone she could trust, someone who would never laugh at her, someone who is as good and brave as the superhero in Flint’s comic book named Squint. Squint is the inspiring story of two new friends dealing with their own challenges, who learn to trust each other, believe in themselves, and begin to truly see what matters most.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator Kirby Heyborne nimbly conveys a range of emotions as he narrates the story of thirteen-year-old Squint. Heyborne tenderly portrays awkward but impassioned Squint…[and] communicates Squint’s complex inner life, from his initial introspection to the implacable confidence that he wields at the story’s close. Heyborne’s exquisite rendering of Squint’s sorrow when faced with unimaginable loss is affecting and authentic. Listeners will be captivated by this unlikely hero and will cheer him on…Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Flint and McKell are sympathetic protagonists with relatable concerns and issues…[in] a moving story about friendship, loss, and seeing life from other people’s point of view. Verdict: Recommended for any library serving middle grade readers.” School Library Journal
“An empathy-building novel with a message that’s fun to read…It sends a strong message about making the most of what you have…Squint takes on a lot and delivers beyond expectations.” Foreword Reviews
