Reviews

"Zack is a relatable narrator and embodies the middle school experience. The steady pace makes this novel a solid pick for reluctant readers." -- School Library Journal

"Zack . . . is a sympathetic narrator, and Anderson spiritedly renders the voices and personalities of preteens, many of Mexican descent, in a blue-collar section of San Antonio, Tex. . . . [A] pleasantly satisfying finish." --Publishers Weekly
