“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
