"Mike's Place is an astonishing achievement; a remarkable insight into Israeli youth culture and the deep ironies of politics and war. An incredibly rich, absorbing and passionate account of a harrowing event and its aftermath." --Steve Brodner, author of Freedom Fries

"Mike's Place is beautiful and true, exciting and tragic--a perfect non-fiction saga that helps expand what the graphic novel can do. Start reading it now; you'll miss your subway stop." --Darin Strauss, author of Half a Life: A Memoir

"This is a well-written and drawn graphic novel that brings home the violence that the people in Israel face daily. . . The senseless violence is brought to life." --VOYA, starred review
