"Sharp, witty and brilliantly observed... I haven't laughed out loud like that for a long time'" --Brian Conaghan, award-winning author of When Mr. Dog Bites

"Roll-on-the-ground funny...Pitch-perfect and hilarious." --Kirkus Reviews

"Sam is a funny, honest, wry narrator and this novel is filled with true laugh-out-loud moments. . . . Hilarious and heartwarming, this is a great fit for high school libraries." --School Library Journal

"This is a deeply moving tale about a boy whose life dramatically shifts once he realizes the truth about where he lives." --SLJ on THE WALL

"This is wholly realistic fiction detailing a boy's coming-of-age in a real-life political situation." --Kirkus on THE WALL

"Riveting." --Publishers Weekly on THE WALL

"Thought-provoking and rife with book-discussion fodder." --Booklist on CONCENTR8

"With a writing style that is both entertaining and stark, Sutcliffe uses broad, vivid strokes to highlight societal injustice while filling in details that focus on the interconnectedness of friendship and the dangers of unquestioningly following a single leader." --Publishers Weekly on CONCENTR8
