Reviews

"Luminous, wise, lyrical, and hilarious. Pup Flanagan is the best sort of underdog hero. This book's pages can barely contain the hugeness of its beating heart." -- Jeff Zentner, author of the NYT Notable Book The Serpent King

"Foley deftly paints a portrait exploring the different ways that grief and loss affect the members of a loving yet broken family. An introspective novel about the healing power of art with light touches of tears, laughter, and romance." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Printz Honor winner Foley takes readers through tenderhearted and sometimes painfully funny observations. It's a narrative that is threaded through with incredible feeling. A warm and clear-eyed examination of a family swimming through grief and a boy who finds the light." -- ALA Booklist (starred review)

"There are wonderful moments of levity, but ultimately the book is a poignant examination of the loss of a loved one during the time between adolescence and adulthood. Written with Foley's keen ear for family dynamics, this is definitely a strong choice."
-- School Library Journal

"Invaluable." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Through confident, expressive narration, Foley...provides an affirming conclusion to this delicately told coming-of-age story." -- Horn Book Magazine

"Well-delineated characters and Foley's subtle hand distinguish this moving novel." -- Publishers Weekly
