Reviews

With empathy and humor, Arnold delves into Bat's relationships with his divorced parents, older sister, teachers, and classmates."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Brimming with quietly tender moments, subtle humor, and authentically rendered family dynamics, Arnold's story, the first in a new series, offers a nonprescriptive and deeply heartfelt glimpse into the life of a boy on the autism spectrum."--ALA Booklist
