Reviews

"Beaudoin is the Fred Astaire of comic writing, translating each sentence into a manic dance routine of half-invented jargon ("chewing the profunda-cud") on his way to blessedly non-cloying coming-of-age glory."-- "Booklist" (starred review)
* "Beaudoin is the Fred Astaire of comic writing, translating each sentence into a manic dance routine of half-invented jargon ("chewing the profunda-cud") on his way to blessedly non-cloying coming-of-age glory." Booklist (starred review)"
*"The author does a brilliant job getting into the head of a troubled teen and does not shy away from racy topics." School Library Journal (starred review)"
"Larger-than-life characters....Behind the music quest, sarcasm and pursuit of girls, however, lies a more complicated and often compelling story about family, grief and flawed coping mechanisms." Kirkus"
"[Beaudoin] plays language like Hendrix plays a guitar." BCCB"
