Reviews

"[This] debut novel rips through the near future...powered by the megawatt voice of Mafuri Long, a spritely surfer babe from Generation Z whose epic wave crests through this tale."--Kirkus Reviews

"That Crazy Perfect Someday is a stunningly confident debut novel, as agile, quick, and sure-footed as its protagonist. Its narrative surprises hit like rogue waves but feel inevitable in retrospect, expressions of this book's unique physics. The surfing scenes are among the best I've ever read, and the vivid and richly imagined detail calls to mind the work of Adam Johnson and T.C. Boyle. Mafuri is one of those rare characters to whom you'll have trouble saying goodbye when the pages run out." --Doug Dorst, New York Times bestselling coauthor of S.

"Feisty hero Mafuri's first-person narration gives voice to the rarely glamorous and often infuriating world of being a female athlete. This is a beach-bag must-have." --Booklist (starred review)
