"Zrull, whose author bio indicates she was herself a foster kid, delves with remarkable grit and heart into many sensitive issues, including mental health and body positivity... These geeks will warm even the coldest, darkest hearts." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Zrull's debut vulnerably and empathetically celebrates geekdom and connection featuring a goth queen teen who uses her image as a shield against the world." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Zrull's debut is a beautiful blend of all things cosplay and mental health awareness, with a fiercely independent yet vulnerable heroine whose journey to closure, family, and love is heartbreaking but endearing." --Booklist

"The comic con setting gives way to pop culture references and cosplay options that are simply fun. The romance, the LARPing, the costumes--it's a geek's definition of fun." --Seattle Book Review

"[T]he diverse cast brings the world of competitive cosplay to a YA audience with humor and heart. Readers who enjoy heartwarming stories of found families like Longo's What I Carry or Masood's Sway With Me will love this story of a teen finding her voice and discovering she's not alone." --Children's Literature
