Reviews

"The compelling issues and engaging premise make this a rewarding read." -- ALA Booklist

"This is a wrenching but ultimately redemptive look at how pain defines us and how love, whether familial, romantic or friendly, demands sacrifice and brings gifts of its own. Once again, Shusterman spins a fantastic tale that sheds light on everyday life." -- Kirkus Reviews

"This eloquent and thoughtful story will most certainly leave its mark." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Even as the narrative wrestles with philosophical and moral issues, it delves deep into the viewpoints of Tennyson, Bronte, Bruiser, and his younger brother, each segment told in a different, distinctive style, making for a memorable story." -- Publishers Weekly

"Shusterman's writing is wonderful and a joy to read. The subject matter makes this a great book discussion choice." -- Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)

"Shusterman's novel reveals its secrets and their implications slowly, allowing readers to connect the dots before the characters do and encouraging them to weigh the price of Bruiser's 'gift' against the freedom from pain that Tennyson and Bronte enjoy." -- School Library Journal
