About the Author
"Wright's occasionally flashy but mostly straightforward...prose should work equally well for bookish and non-bookish readers."--"Kirkus Reviews"
"Wright gives voice, complexity, and heart to the kind of character often relegated to a cliche sidekick role...[Carlos is] a walking example of the inner strength teens need--regardless of their sexuality."
"There's a whole lot going on in Wright's novel, but it's handled deftly and, for the most part, believably. Best of all, Carlos is not completely defined by his homosexuality. It is an important part of him, yes, but so are his ambition, his concern for his sister, and his capacity for friendship."--"Booklist"
"A fast-paced and humorous chick-lit read, Carlos is sure of himself and yet willing to acknowledge when he makes mistakes. His loyalty to friends and family and grace under pressure come through as he overcomes stereotyping to achieve his goal."--"Library Media Connection"
