Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Geoff Rodkey… has his pacing down to a science…The voices of the two characters telling the story are absolutely pitch-perfect…Kids are going to gobble up this new series.” San Francisco Book Review
“An engaging mash-up of history, gaming, social media, and family dynamics.” Shelf Awareness
“Rodkey clearly knows his audience, as well as the love that (usually) hides underneath sibling warfare. The clear-cut winners are readers of this uproarious series opener, which is packed with both laugh-out-loud moments and heart.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“While there is plenty of hilarity, readers will experience many little pings of recognition; the dynamics between siblings and schoolmates rings true. Rodkey keeps the action moving and relatively light while maintaining a laser-beamlike eye on the complicated bond of twins, navigating the minefield that is middle school without judgment or didacticism. Fragile egos, misunderstandings, and actions that seemed like a good idea at the time are laid out in an engaging format that will be appealing to tween digital natives…A fine beginning to a funny, new middle grade series.” School Library Journal
“Thanks to the inclusion of various points of view, Claudia’s reasonably balanced narrative offers plenty of humorous insight.” Booklist
“The banter provides an authentic and funny look at sibling rivalry. While sixth graders will enjoy this novel, it might be best labeled as juvenile fiction and would find a ready audience.” VOYA
“An escalating sibling spat delivers ‘a buttload of life lessons’ along with tears, terrible smells, a dorky Mohawk, and massive numbers of video-game casualties.” Kirkus Reviews
“Offering a full cast to narrate truly gives the audiobook the sound of oral history as well as creating the opportunity to give each character a well-rounded and hilarious reading…Each narrator makes his or her character stand out. The full cast also works well in narrating the text messages and notes from parents. A delightful listen is made even more so by a stellar cast. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
