Reviews

"At a time when truly humorous young adult fiction is scarce, reading Lubar's first YA novel (a coming of age story) is like finding a nest of kittens in a hayloft--wondrously surprising, playful, and heartwarming." --VOYA (5Q, 4P, M, J)

"Hidden Talents provides us with a glimpse of David Lubar as a writer whose comic talent is matched by his ability to write with sensitivity and power about adolescents." --The Alan Review

"On the whole Lubar serves up great fun, along with an insight or two for those whose powers are only too human." --Publishers Weekly

"[T]he interrelationships between the five misfits and their interactions with the teachers are credible, and the dialogue is right on target. With plenty of humor, this is a good bet for reluctant readers as well as for kids who like offbeat fiction." --Booklist

"Hidden Talents is becoming--and deserves to be--a classic of YA literature. It's one of the best, no matter what age you are." --Orson Scott Card, bestselling author of Ender's Game
