Reviews
* "The answers here are satisfying but never simple...A story that, like Finley, expresses a lot in relatively few words."--Kirkus, starred review
"Beautiful...It is this depth that makes "Boy21" more than a first-rate novel fueled by basketball; it's a first-rate work of art."--The New York Time Book Review
"Every aspect of this multilayered novel harmonizes...excellently set-up twists display Quick's mastery of pacing; authentic dialogue and deft character development ensure both our emotional investment in these richly complex boys and also our empathizing with their main commonality--feeling like "you're not the person on the outside that you are on the inside.""--The Horn Book
"His emotionally raw tale retains a delicate sense of hope and optimism, making it a real gut punch of a read."--Publishers Weekly
