"Holy Batman, this is a gorgeous, heartbreaking, and heartwarming book" --R.J. Palacio, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Wonder

"An imaginative and surprisingly tender story of the unbreakable bond between siblings."--Booklist, starred review

"Exceptional ...precisely observed, engrossing and tender." --The Sunday Times (UK)

"Themes of family and forgiveness are front and center, but the heart of this story--and the magic of it--is the devotion of these two siblings who together navigate the harsh realities of life and loss." --Publishers Weekly

"Lyrical and emotionally complex, this coming-of-age tale explores 'all the giant things and all the great things' about family and growing up." --Kirkus Reviews

"Though I defy you to read it without tears, Lenny's Book of Everything is warm, humorous, absolutely real, and above all, uplifting. It's also the best book I've read this year." --Wendy Orr, author of Nim's Island

"A beautiful read. I savored every word and loved every character . . . such a big heart and not a beat out of place." --Melina Marchetta, author of Looking for Alibrandi and Saving Francesca
