"Exceptional, needed, honest, and true." -educator Matthew Winner, host of The Children's Book Podcast
"Perfect for anyone who loves video games, anyone who thinks and learns a little differently, and really, anyone who loves a great story. Readers will laugh along and root for BenBee and his friends through all the twists and turns of this engaging multimodal story. I absolutely adored this book." -Kate Messner, author of Chirp and Breakout

"[A]ppealing to readers who might resist a page full of prose. . . [K.A. Holt's] stories are sophisticated and character-driven."-The Austin American-Statesman
"Each young character has an expansive life outside the classroom that affects their academic performance and self-image. In addition to loss, a shared feeling is frustration in trying hard and still not measuring up. Over time, the relationships they form change them all. . . . Well-developed characters populate a heartwarming tale."-Kirkus Reviews
BenBee and the Teacher Griefer is one of those rare novels that ache with honesty: it is about discouragement and hope, about sad lonesomeness and glad community, about listening and being heard, about the fear of vulnerability and the absolute joy of being known. It is, in other words, about life-and like life, it demands our attention. You won't, you really won't stop turning the pages!"-Gary D. Schmidt, Newbery Honoree, Printz Honoree, and National Book Award Finalist for Okay for Now
