Praise

“Libba Bray not only breaks the mold of the ubiquitous dying-teenager genre—she smashes it and grinds the tiny pieces into the sidewalk. For the record, I’d go anywhere she wanted to take me.”—The New York Times

“Offer this to fans of Douglas Adams’s Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy seeking more inspired lunacy.”—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“An unforgettable, nearly indefinable fantasy . . . wholly unique, ambitious, tender, thought-provoking, and often fall-off-the-chair funny.”—Booklist, Starred Review

“Readers will have a great time.”—The Horn Book

“It’s a trip worth taking.”—SLJ

“Here’s one book about dying that has a wicked sense of humor.”—The Denver Post

“A laugh-out-loud tear-jerking fantastical voyage into the meaning of what is real in life.”—VOYA

“A very messed-up book, but in a good way. . . .Hilarious, random, surreal and thought-provoking.”—Guys Lit Wire
