"Though brief, this text masterfully connects the toxic masculinity to its roots in deep misogyny, making Fish a hero people of all genders can stand up and cheer for. All readers will appreciate this book's nuanced messaging around gender roles and trusting yourself."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"An excellent story about gender roles and growing up...Fast-paced, and the ending is both satisfying and heartwarming...An excellent read-aloud choice, and its contents would provide many opportunities for discussion. Highly Recommended."-- "CM: Canadian Review of Materials"
"These quality, relatable novels are ideal for students at the middle school level who benefit from ultra-readable formats."-- "School Library Journal"
"High-ly rec-om-mend-ed...Fishel's sto-ry zips along and the vocab-u-lary and length make it acces-si-ble even for reluc-tant read-ers...Read-ers will sup-port [Fish] through-out his strug-gle to pur-sue his own inter-ests and rise beyond labeling."-- "Jewish Book Council"
"Uplifting, gentle...Exudes inter-generational warmth, family love, and friendship."-- "Association of Jewish Libraries"
