"In Wendi Aarons' delightful novel Ginger Mancino, Kid Comedian, a girl navigates the spaces between fame and friendship...Ginger delivers snappy one-liners on every page...a warm, funny novel about the value of pursuing your dreams." -Foreword Reviews (July/August 2022)

"Funny, heartwarming and adorable! Ginger's story will resonate with funny kids everywhere." -Jenny Lawson, author of #1 New York Times bestsellers Furiously Happy and Let's Pretend This Never Happened

"I sure could have used a book like Kid Comedian when I was a pre-teen. Ginger Mancino is funny and real, and the timelessness of her emotions makes them relatable to anyone who has ever attended middle school. While Ginger is smart, funny and curious, sometimes things do not go her way. Reading along as she discovers the importance of developing positive relationships, and the strength to persist after making mistakes offers readers the chance to emerge a little better, a little wiser. Wendi Aarons writes with respect for young readers and a deep understanding that we fumble and triumph as we discover ourselves." -Meredith Walker, co-founder and executive director of Amy Poehler's Smart Girls

"Equal parts witty and awkweird, Ginger Mancino is a comic hero for the ages-provided she can survive middle school. A funny, joyful story that provides a laugh and a heart tug on every page." -Shari Simpson, author of Sam Saves the Night and the upcoming Disney Books series, The Sugar Rush Racers

"A hilarious and deeply touching story for anyone who has ever felt different. Ginger Mancino is a tenacious force and reminds us all that you don't have to conform to shine your light. Ginger Mancino, Kid Comedian is a legit hit!" -Melissa Savage, author of Lemons and Karma Moon-Ghost Hunter

"Comedy is hard, but so is growing up. Ginger's determination to master both makes for a compelling, heartfelt, and hilarious read!" -Jennifer Ziegler, author of The Brewster Triplets series and Worser

"Ginger's hilarious comedy routines, self-deprecating candor, and generous heart left me convulsed in giggles but also enriched by the genuine wisdom to be found in the search for laughter." -Claudia Mills, author of The Lost Language and Write This Down
