"Hand this one to those who've already gone through Levithan's Boy Meets Boy and Kluger's My Most Excellent Year." --The Bulletin

"Barakiva's first novel is at once a sweet-spirited love story . . . the Armenian content adds flavor and texture.." --Booklist

"The story will appeal to both young people who are just discovering their own sexuality and readers who enjoy a good budding romance." --School Library Journal

"Barakiva's debut is well-wrought and realistic . . . and it's entertaining." --Kirkus Reviews

"Barakiva avoids stereotypes and clichés to create a sweet portrait of nascent adolescent love between two boys growing up and finding themselves (with some help from nearby New York City)." --Publishers Weekly

"A romantic comedy with Armenian flair . . . Don't miss it." --E. Lockhart, author of We Were Liars

"A kind and generous book about the loneliness of a young boy trying to navigate between a chaotic Armenian family and a school of bullying cliques. Alek Khederian deals bravely and inspiringly with the perils of learning to love your family, to love someone else, and most of all, to love yourself." --Eleanor Bergstein, novelist and screenwriter of the film Dirty Dancing
