Reviews

"Felix is like the story itself--boldly empathic, hopeful, and full of love. This top-notch depiction of a messy, complicated, romantic young artist navigating the bumpy road to self-love and self-determination sticks its landing at every turn." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"From its stunning cover art to the rich, messy, nuanced narrative at its heart, this is an unforgettable story of friendship, heartbreak, forgiveness, and self-discovery, crafted by an author whose obvious respect for teen readers radiates from every page." -- ALA Booklist (starred review)

"Felix explores love, friendship, and possibly retribution in this powerful #OwnVoices story of identity and self-worth... Full of warmth, love, and support, this is an important story and an essential purchase." -- School Library Journal (starred review)

"The writing is smart and engaging, and #OwnVoices author Callender includes sound information and responsible psychological guidance without bogging down the storytelling. Felix does ultimately find love in this sweet and tender trans romance, but his hardest-won victory is in the fight to validate his self-worth." -- Horn Book Magazine

"Full of nuanced looks at how relationships can be both toxic and supportive, loving and confusing, and exciting but brief, this is definitely not a book to be missed." -- Buzzfeed

"An intricate love story for the ages." -- CNN Underscored

"Felix is an open, warm, engaging character who extends far off the page. He's easy to relate to regardless of reader identity, which makes this book a great candidate for school libraries and summer book report lists." -- them.

"From effervescent characters that I still can't get out of my head to the sizzling backdrop of a New York City summer, Callender brings vibrance to a story that desperately needed to be told." -- Jackson Bird, author of Sorted: Growing Up, Coming Out, and Finding My Place
