Editorial Reviews


An Indie Bestseller!
An Indie Next Pick!
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

“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 a USA Today bestselling, Lambda Literary Award-winning author and an ex-claims examiner for an insurance company. His novels include The House in the Cerulean Sea and The Extraordinaries. Being queer himself, TJ believes it's important―now more than ever―to have accurate, positive, queer representation in stories.
