"Gritty and edgy, this novel smartly tackles suicide, teen alcoholism, and creative expression....By combining a narrator who embraces pain and resentment with story twists and misunderstandings, Crompton creates a fascinating novel that will fully absorb readers." - Booklist
"This silly, fairy tale adventure is a delight from start to finish. and it's empowering conclusion is a welcome bonus. Pippin-Mathur's candy-colored watercolor illustrations are gleeful with whimsical touches and guaranteed to elicit laughter from young readers." - Booklist
"Buck survives to show emotional resilience, as well as an ability to learn from his mistakes, and Holt leaves him, along with readers, eager for a sequel." - Booklist, STARRED review
