Reviews

"Martin Wilson's What They Always Tell Us hears the voices of the young as they struggle toward adulthood. . . ."
--Richard Peck, Newbery Award-winning author

"In his beautifully realized first novel, Martin Wilson demonstrates a wonderful gift for finding the truth in human caring and for creating memorably multidimensional and engagingly sympathetic characters whom readers will welcome into their hearts."
--Michael Cart, former president of the ALA's Young Adult Library Services Association and the Assembly on Literature for Adolescents

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, July 28, 2008:
"Insightfully evoked, Alex, James and their friends will leave a lasting impression on readers."

Starred Review, Booklist, November 15, 2008:
"This is a strong debut, and Wilson shows admirable control of a complicated story that in less-accomplished hands could have spun out of control."
