Praise for Caring is Creepy

Alex Award Winner


“Lynn’s voice is authentically sardonic and compelling…. The intersections of Lynn’s and Logan’s story line with the consequences of Hayes’s shady dealings are consistently exciting.”
Publishers Weekly

“David Zimmerman has written a beautifully menacing novel. I found it impossible to stop reading—as teenage girls flirt with danger online, an AWOL soldier hides out in a closet, and drug deals go dead wrong—and you will too, as the danger steadily escalates, the sentences unspooling like a detonator line that sizzles toward an explosive, unforgettable ending.”
Benjamin Percy, author of The Wilding and Refresh, Refresh

“This story is sweet, funny, sad, infuriating, and all too real.”
Tulsa Books Examiner

“An engrossing and unforgettable tale based on actual events…. Those who can empathize with flawed characters in dire situations will not be able to put this book down.”
Library Journal

“When Zimmerman’s characters get dirty, you feel the grit, and when they hurt, you feel the sting.” Ames Tribune

“[A]n insidious and deceiving but often sweet summertime ensnarement that is alternatively a tangled web and tender trap.” —Blogcritics.org


Praise for David Zimmerman’s previous novel, The Sandbox

“[A] gripping first novel.”
The New York Times Book Review

“[A] remarkable debut…. Zimmerman is a talent to watch.”
Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW

“Zimmerman adroitly depicts [Iraq’s] isolated moonscape—a place as liable to produce hallucinations and heat exhaustion as it is to churn up sandstorms that last for days.”
Los Angeles Times
