Included in the CBC's October 2022 Hot Off the Press reading list

"The combination of verse and prose keeps the pace moving, and colloquialisms add to the sense of place. A textured coming-of-age story deeply rooted in a working-class community."
--Kirkus Reviews

"An emotional thread that packs a wallop fit for the boxing ring. With an unshakable sense of place and a quick one-two punch ending, this is a novel that appeals most to a specific reader but that will open up a new world for others who give it a try."

"Dynamic verse and sincere prose...Prominent messages about classism and forgiveness add layers to this insightful rendering of the amateur boxing world."
--Publishers Weekly

"An uncompromising and unflinching novel that certainly packs a punch."
--Brian Conaghan, author of The Boy Who Made it Rain

"Gutsy, gripping and dangerous yet full of heart, truth and soul. Duckhouse's exceptional debut floats like a butterfly, stings like a poet."
--Keith Gray, author of Ostrich Boys and The Climbers

"Brave and bold, a proper right hook to the senses."
--Phil Earle
