Reviews

Praise for Pity Party

*"A heartfelt and relatable book filled with moments of darkness and humor, plus a little magic....Hand to fans of Jason Reynolds's Look Both Ways."

--School Library Journal, starred review
"In this collection of absurd, funny, and thought- provoking stories, Kathleen Lane shows genuine compassion and empathy for her characters, and even more importantly, for the reader. I would recommend this book to anyone who has ever felt socially awkward or inadequate - well, to everyone."--Louis Sachar, Author of Holes, and the Wayside School series.
"Few authors have ever put their fingers on the surreal pulse of the experience of middle school as effectively as Kathleen Lane. Listen to me, readers, this peculiar and downright delightful little book is a veritable lifeline. Grasp it tight."--Betsy Bird, A Fuse #8 Production, School Library Journal
