About the Author

Derek E. Sullivan is an award-winning reporter. He has written more than 1,000 stories about the lives of teenagers, which he attributes to helping him find his YA voice. He has an MFA from Hamline University and lives in Minnesota with his wife and three sons. This is his first novel.


"Some teens may find Biggie's attitutude off-putting. In the end, however, Biggie redeems himself by realizing that he just might be the villain of the story. This novel is well written and fairly quick-paced." School Library Journal, February 1, 2015
"Thoughtful and witty, Biggie tells a story full of physical and emotional highs and lows as debut author Sullivan empathetically addresses topics of self-esteem and finding healthier, happier versions of oneself (and what that even means)." Publishers Weekly, January 19, 2015
"Biggie's story will resonate with all those students who feel invisible and alone. A bighearted story that will have readers rooting for Henry 'Biggie' Abbott." Kirkus Reviews, January 15, 2015
"Venturing beyond the typical boy-seeks-girl story, this filters the agonies of adolescence through a largely unvoiced perspective with an honesty readers will appreciate." Booklist, March 1, 2015
"Biggie's road to enlightenment is by turns hilarious and devastating, and although he doesn't end up with ripped abs, sports-page headlines, or the girl of his dreams, he does get a life--and despite his self-deluded protestations, that's exactly what he wanted." The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, June 1, 2015
