"A joy ride that will take readers from crying to gripping their seats and back again." -- Kirkus Reviews
"A solidly queer addition to the sci-fi canon that interrogates how the pursuit of science can sometimes overshadow a commitment to ethics." -- Publishers Weekly
"[A] fast-paced, suspenseful plot; some cliff-hangers and a surprise ending will win over most fans of the genre. Moments of light comedy, romantic subplots, and a twisty search for the truth, mixed with the cartoonish, anime-inspired drawing style makes this an easy sell to teens. Furedi does a wonderful job with LGBTQIA+ representation throughout the piece, which plays well into the plot, as Ren must not only contemplate his existence in this strange time but his own sexual orientation. A compelling and thought-provoking sci-fi adventure grounded in relatable characters." -- Booklist Online
"Exaggerated expressions, shocks of vivid color, and creative use of panel size all work to reinforce significant moments in the text. Most effective with the visual format is the use of space, particularly around Ren, as the reader can see his emotional walls slowly coming down well before he admits it to himself. The sci-fi details and a significant plot twist provide plenty of intrigue, but Ren's self-discovery is the heart of this stand-alone graphic novel." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
