Jerry lives with his wife, Eileen, also a writer, in Wayne, Pennsylvania.

Reviews

"Double the feelings, double the fun."--Kirkus Reviews
"Spinelli is a poet of the prepubescent...Nobody is better than Spinelli when it comes to creating the grade-school world of qualified innocence--and treading a fine line between challenge and reassurance."--New York Times Book Review
"Each character is portrayed with emotional subtlety and conviction, while their juxtaposed viewpoints bring the energy of opposing forces to the story."--Booklist
"Spinelli's hallmark issues--individuality, nonconformity, alienation, standing up for the little guy--figure prominently, and the messages are convincingly worked into the story."--Horn Book Magazine
β˜… "Spinelli adroitly balances emotional tension with introspective moments in this smart and funny story."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
