Reviews

"Kids won't just love this book. They need it."--Soman Chainani, New York Times-bestselling author of The School for Good and Evil
"Forget the dragons. Forget the swords and shields. Here is the true quest: to face the unendurable, knowing defeat is inevitable, and yet continuing with dignity and honor and purpose and, even, joy. Each page crackles as we embark on the greatest adventure of all."--Gary D. Schmidt, Newbery Honor winner and author of Okay For Now
"A story of that one teacher we all have who we'll never forget, told with laugh-out-loud humor and oh, so much heart."--Gordon Korman, New York Times-bestselling author of Ungifted
"Brand, Steve and Topher are a comic, lovable crew, and wise, pink-haired Ms. Bixby is the teacher every child deserves. This is a touching, often hilarious story of endings, beginnings, and self-discovery. As Brand would say, frawesome!"--Tricia Springstubb, author of Moonpenny Island
"Anderson skillfully balances realism and comic exaggeration in an emotionally rich tale that holds no miracles, other than the small human kind."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"This surprising, inspiring, and relatable book is perfect for boys and girls who loved Wonder and will make you fondly remember your favorite teacher."--Brightly
