Reviews

"A lyrical, raucous narrative interspersed with flyers, posters, and letters...the oscillation between [Noah's] heartfelt interior thoughts and sometimes careless actions and words is both moving and infuriating-in other words, vividly human. An intelligent, thought-provoking exploration of living in spite of futility." -- Booklist (starred review)

"Intellectual boys' boarding school story meets near-future dystopia in this end-times tale. ...Noah and his friends form loving, believably complex relationships...witty." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Noah is a nihilistic existentialist to the world, but inside he's searching for something to reassure him that he is truly alive. His search for meaning is universal and will resonate with readers beginning to question their future." -- School Library Journal

"The complex organization of this novel requires careful attention...Even so, brainy readers who want to see just how grim Holden Caulfield would get if he knew he was dying soon will find this to be a pretty accurate approximation." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
