"As with Montgomery Sole, my life is made bearable and glorious by a Mystery Club--a group of authors who tell the truth with wit and verve and style. Mariko Tamaki is in this club. . . . She's the coolest member." --Daniel Handler, author of Why We Broke Up

"Saving Montgomery Sole is a beautiful and eloquent book that perfectly captures the yearning for a mystery larger than ourselves." --Holly Black, author of The Darkest Part of the Forest

"A deeply satisfying, smart, and necessary kind of book. Tamaki takes a classic high school narrative and infuses it with magic, queerness, and compelling complexity." --Kate Schatz, author of Rad American Women A-Z

"Mysticism and emotion live side by side for Montgomery Sole, a teen girl who is trying to unravel both the mysteries of the universe and of other people. I gobbled this book up in one sitting." --Kate Scelsa, author ofFans of the Impossible Life

"Mariko Tamaki treasures and tears apart the quirky, confounding, and awkwardly beautiful parts of being a teenager, lending her unique talent and authentic voice to a cast of oddballs who also happen to be our neighbors, friends, and family." --Corey Silverberg, author of Sex Is a Funny Word

"Mariko Tamaki's writing is my comfort food! Try saving Montgomery Sole, end up saving yourself." --Raziel Reid, author of When Everything Feels Like the Movies

"A quietly assured story . . . Montgomery's slow confrontation with reality creates a realistic, satisfying arc, and Tamaki's economical storytelling results in dimensional characters whose struggles feel viscerally real." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Tamaki balances the story's lighter and more intense moments through Monty's smart, forthright first-person narration . . . Meanwhile, the well-developed and likable supporting cast raises the novel's emotional stakes . . . Offbeat and authentic--an uncommon treat." --Kirkus Reviews

"The characters are refreshingly diverse for YA literature, in both sexuality and race, and the conversations around religion, homophobia, and society are written as if they are a norm of Montgomery's life--never straying into preachy or didactic territory . . . A strong addition to most school or public library YA collections." --School Library Journal
