"[A] darkly comic and winning novel."--San Francisco Chronicle "Funny, sad, realistic, irreverent, and very readable."--Library Journal "Captures the texture of high-school life in a refreshing manner."--Time Out New York "Exceedingly funny...sharp observation...a delight."--The Clevland Plain Dealer "A neatly written, nimble-witted novel...a good-natured, John Irvingesque portrait of the contemporary world...seamless storytelling."--The Washington Post "Perotta is that rare writer equally gifted at drawing people's emotional maps...and creating sidesplitting scenes."--People "An American Chekhov."--The New York Times Book Review
