Editorial Reviews

Review

An Indie Bestseller!
An Indie Next Pick!
A Gold Nautilus Book Award Winner!
One of Goodread's "Most Anticipated YA Novels of 2020"
One of Buzzfeed's "YA Fantasy Books We Can't Wait to Read in 2020"

One of BookPage's "Most Anticipated YA Summer Reads"

"Uproariously funny, this razor-sharp book is half a love-letter to fandom, half self-aware satire, and wholly lovable. I haven't read anything quite like this before!" ―Sophie Gonzales, author of Only Mostly Devastated

“The most down-to-earth book about superheroes I've ever read. I laughed, I cried, and I had a smile on my face the entire time I was reading it” ―Mason Deaver, bestselling author of I Wish You All the Best

“TJ Klune is doing powerful work that inspires and impresses. He is a gift to our troubled times, and his novels are a radiant treat to all who discover them.” ―Locus

“Klune plays with superhero genre tropes and fan-fiction clichés with the skill of a true fan―completely aware of their ridiculousness but in love with them anyway. Hilarious, sweet, and absolutely super!” ―Kirkus

"If you're looking for a book to read and then reread several times before the next Spider-Man movie releases, this will be perfect." ―Buzzfeed

“Klune’s deliberate use of traditional comic book themes, such as masking one's identity, mirror common struggles faced by neurodiverse and LGBTQIAP+ youth; this thoughtful approach urges readers to embrace their true selves.” ―Shelf Awareness, starred review

“Part superhero homage, part sigh-worthy romance, part action-packed adventure, this novel is all kinds of comical fun... plenty of genuine laugh-out-loud moments.” ―Bulletin Center for Children’s Books

“Just what teens who devour the CW’s DC shows and Marvel’s cinematic universe films need to tide them over as they await new seasons of superhero television.” ―BookPage

“Klune’s romp is irresistibly readable…. Readers will be delighted!” ―Booklist

“Nick’s ADHD and almost comical optimism combine to make a charming and entertaining hero[.] There’s plenty in this lighthearted, superhero-interested teen dramedy for kids who feel like they’re sometimes on the outside, including the positive representation of a teen with ADHD.” ―Publishers Weekly

“Klune takes cues from Peter Milligan’s classic queer comic Enigma, with an Everyman bewildered by the superhero story that seems to revolve around him. Hand to teens involved in fandom, writers of fan fiction, lovers of superhero stories, and queer romance readers.” ―School Library Journal

Praise for TJ Klune

“TJ Klune is a master storyteller.” ―The Mary Sue

“Touching, tender, and truly delightful, The House in the Cerulean Sea is an utterly absorbing story of tolerance, found family, and defeating bureaucracy.” ―Gail Carriger, New York Times bestselling author of Soulless, on The House in the Cerulean Sea

“Sweet, comforting, and kind, this book is very close to perfect. The House in the Cerulean Sea is a work of classic children's literature written for adults and children alike, with the perspective and delicacy of the modern day. I cannot recommend it highly enough.”―Seanan McGuire, New York Times bestselling author of Every Heart a Doorway, on The House in the Cerulean Sea

“Quirk and charm give way to a serious exploration of the dangers of complacency in this delightful, thought-provoking Orwellian fantasy from Klune.... This tale of found family is hopeful to its core. Readers will revel in Klune’s wit and ingenuity.” ―Publishers Weekly (starred review) on The House in the Cerulean Sea

“If ever there was an author to watch out for, [Klune] is definitely that author.” ―Culturess Daily

“Hilarious and irreverent.” ―USA Today's Happy Ever After on The Lightning-Struck Heart

“Incredibly moving.” ―Refinery29 on Wolfsong

About the Author

TJ KLUNE is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling, Lambda Literary Award-winning author of The House in the Cerulean Sea, The Extraordinaries, and more. Being queer himself, Klune believes it's important―now more than ever―to have accurate, positive queer representation in stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars The world is not worthy of Nick Bell!
By ShannonVM on July 14, 2020
I love this book with every fiber of my being. I laughed, I cried, I sobbed, I sighed, and I swooned over and with these oh so precious characters! The world is not worthy of Nick Bell.
Up until now, The House in the Cerulean Sea held the top spot of my favorite read of 2020, but The Extraordinaries has pretty much made it a tie. I may have to divide my top reads into Adult and Young Adult. Or I'll just leave it a tie. I'm just so in love with this book I don't know what I'm saying and I don't know what to do with myself.

The Extraordinaries is so fun, but also extremely heartfelt. Nick is so wonderfully endearing and clueless and precious, I just adored him. I loved the relationship he had with his dad, it was so heartwarming and realistic. And the friendships in this book are ones we'd all be so lucky to have.

This story was just so delightful. Nick with his absolute obsession with a certain superhero, his wanting to be a superhero himself, his cluelessness over his feelings for Seth, his pure obliviousness at times, it was almost too much for my heart to handle. I enjoyed seeing his growth throughout the book, and how, as fun as this story was, it was also full of teachable and learnable moments. I liked the way the heavier issues were handled, and that things weren't glossed over but dealt with in a realistic way.

For his first YA novel I think TJ Klune knocked it out of the universe with The Extraordinaries! After that epilogue I'm not sure how we're expected to wait until 2021 for book two, but no matter how long I have to wait, I will be here for it. The world definitely needs more superheroes!
