Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings
||Gary Paulsen fans will enjoy this high-interest, intriguing, humorous, and unexpected story. * School Library Connection * As usual with Paulsen, there's lots of middle-grade appeal here, and the book should find plenty of fans. * Booklist * The novel's contained setting and rapid-fire dialogue gives the story a theatrical quality that Paulsen taps into directly by retelling the entire story in screenplay form, complete with stage directions, at the end. Both versions provide opportunities for thought and conversations about self-honesty, stereotypes, and making friends in unexpected situations. * Publishers Weekly * A quick read for fans of relationship fiction. * School Library Journal * [L]ikable characters and a nice dose of humor. Twice. * Kirkus Reviews *
