One of Canadian Children’s Book Centre’s Best Book Covers of 2018
One of CCBC’S Best Books for Kids & Teens (Spring 2019)

PRAISE FOR Kens:


“[A] more complex work, satirising the experience of gay teenagers as well as portraying it sympathetically.” —Economist 1843

Kens is certainly an intriguing sophomore novel that will spark much discussion among young readers, critics, and academics alike. Fans of Mean Girls and Heathers will find a lot to love here. . . . Recommended.” –CM Magazine

“The novel’s critique of societal obsessions with media and self-image, combined with its brilliant takedown of queer culture’s “alpha gays,” makes it a worthwhile read.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Raising issues while raising eyebrows, Kens comes to life in this space between the terrible and the beautiful, and asks: if both are fascinating, how can we tell the difference between them?” —Quill & Quire

“[A] brilliant satire of today’s social media-obsessed youth. And it is edgier, bolder and funnier than almost anything out there in the current young-adult market. . . . Kens may be the perfect gift for gay teenagers, especially those who don’t take themselves too seriously.” Winnipeg Free Press
