Schmidt, whose Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy won both Printz and Newbery Honors, delivers another winner. Deeply satisfying. -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Schmidt [gets] to the emotional heart of every scene without overstatement. Another virtuoso turn by the author of Lizzie Bright. -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Schmidt rises above the novel's conventions to create memorable and believable characters. -- Horn Book (starred review)

One of my favorite books of the year. -- New York Times

A graceful novel full of goodwill, yearning and heart. -- San Francisco Chronicle

An entertaining and nuanced novel. There are laugh-out-loud moments that leaven the many poignant ones. -- School Library Journal

An accessible, humorous school story, and at the same time, an insightful coming-of-age tale. -- BookPage
