Reviews

Praise for Greetings from Witness Protection:

An Autumn 2017 Kids' Indie Next List Selection

"Jake Burt is a storytelling magician. Part coming of age tale and part spy thriller, Greetings from Witness Protection could be a collaboration between Judy Blume and Ian Fleming. -- Ann M. Martin, New York Times-bestselling author of Rain Reign and the Baby-Sitters Club series

"This inventive, clever story has a lot of heart at its center. Jake Burt's debut is utterly rewarding."--Wendy Mass, New York Times-bestselling author of The Candymakers and Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life

"The biggest complaint that readers may have about Burt's debut novel is that it ends. . . endearing from page one."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"A delightful, sometimes touching balance of action, humor, and heart."--Booklist, starred review

"WA funny, action-packed novel about the trials of school, parental arguments, and sibling rivalry--all with a dash of high-stakes thrills and dramatic showdowns..."--School Library Journal

"An engaging treat." --Voices of Youth Advocates
****
Praise for The Right Hook of Devin Velma:

A Junior Library Guild Selection
A BookRiot Middle Grade Gift Guide Selection

"Spot-on sixth-grade humor and sympathetic characters will hook readers as he explores fame and friendship in the age of social media."--Publishers Weekly

"Fisticuffs ensue, but so in time do good and brave words in this goofy, affectionate tale of loyalty, family and fraternity."--Wall Street Journal

"A sweet, accessible comedy about two sixth grade boys. Short and punchy sentences get straight to the funny stuff and leave just enough unexplained to keep readers moving to the resolution. ... A wholesome, appealing, and fast-paced friendship tale."--School Library Journal
