Praise

Deep and uproarious all at once . . . A clever spin on a weighty classic.”Kirkus Reviews starred review

An outstanding YA novel balancing comedy with substantial themes of love, death, and healing.—School Library Journal, starred review

“Grendel’s Guide to Love and War
is both laugh-out-loud funny and cry-softly-to-yourself heartbreaking. A surprisingly affecting comedic gem about what it means to truly know another human being.” —Lance Rubin, author of Denton Little’s Death Date

“A smart, snappy novel that weaves allusions to Beowulf into a plot full of pranks, home-brewing, lawn-mowing, and a fearsome geriatric army. Deftly satirical and unexpectedly moving, this book is a can’t-miss.”—Kate Hattemer, author of The Vigilante Poets of Selwyn Academy

“Get ready to fall in love with Tom Grendel! He cracked me up, he made me cringe, and he surprised me, but through it all, I was always rooting for him—and you will, too.”—Leila Sales, author of This Song Will Save Your Life
