Starred review, Kirkus Reviews, March 1, 2014:
“A sparkling, timely tour of the complicated intersection where life meets art. . . . A treat from cover to cover.”

Starred review, Booklist, March 15, 2014:
“Relying on the passion and ideals that drive adolescence, this has a vibrancy and authenticity that will resonate with anyone who has fought for their beliefs—or who has loved a hamster. (You’ll see.)”

Starred review, VOYA, April 2014:
“Tricolons, espionage, and embezzlement: what is not to like? This brilliantly paced novel is a fresh look at life as an artistic teen. . . . [A] hilarious story of friendship and poetry.”

Starred review, The Bulletin, May 2014:
“Crackling, witty narration, free roaming between hyperintellectual allusion (including Latinate plays on words) and shout-outs to Candyland and Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, will immediately grip fans of Frank Portman and John Green. . . . Irresistible.”
Starred review, Publishers Weekly, June 23, 2014:
“The tension between cynicism and naïveté, knowledge and innocence in these brainy but still maturing kids is astutely evoked, and readers will be right there alongside them for every protest, misstep, and loss.”
