Reviews

"A triumphant work of fiction."--Associated Press
"A rare novel that gets the moment even as we're living it... A fast-paced, engaging novel of pop-culture and big ideas, authentically subversive, and thoroughly American."--The Daily Beast
"[A] smart, edgy, suspenseful first novel... Goodwillie evokes life underground like a master--the tradecraft, the fraught group dynamics, the combination of discipline and paranoia, the longing for normality."--Kirkus
