No accidental work of genius, this--Detorie's carefully crafted novel is an engaging experience.
--Kirkus' ReviewDetorie's sketchy illustrations punctuate a story told with an easy, self-deprecating humor steeped in adolescent modernity without overdoing the slang and up-to-the-minute references.
--Publishers WeeklyAn easygoing change of pace from the usual Sturm und Drang in preteen fiction.
--BooklistA fun tale for those Wimpy Kid book fans who are now in high school. Also a great bet for reluctant readers who love graphic/comic book tales with a hero they can relate with.
