Praise for Original Fake:

★ “A whirlwind of a novel… Johnson’s bold black and orange illustrations spotlight key plot points and emotions… Cronn-Mills’s consideration of the intersections between art and family is striking and heartfelt.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review 

“Peppered with engaging comic book–style panels, Cronn- Mills’ off-the-wall art caper offers insight into a brash, up-and-coming corner of the art world, with a refreshing matter-of-fact acceptance for unconventional choices.”—Booklist 
“[A] distinctive, smart novel.”—Kirkus Reviews 

“[The] plot is great fun, but additional pleasure can be found in the details; both Cronn-Mills’ prose and Johnson’s interspersed graphic sequences play up the sense of a life committed to artistic hyperbole.”—BCCB 
“With a sharply funny teenage voice, graphic panels bursting with life, and a cast of characters as irrepressible as Uncle Epic himself, Original Fake is 100% original: a subversive and timely story of the power of art.”—Kate Hattemer, critically acclaimed author of The Vigilante Poets of Selwyn Academy
Original Fake manages to be grounded and trippy, thoughtful and tense, personal and epic. What a good family we meet. What a great art adventure we go on. And, also, what? It has pictures!”—Geoff Herbach, author of the award-winning Stupid Fast series
